Also question is, what are the three main organs of the lymphatic system?
The lymphatic system is a network of very small tubes (or vessels) that drain lymph fluid from all over the body. The major parts of the lymph tissue are located in the bone marrow, spleen, thymus gland, lymph nodes, and the tonsils. The heart, lungs, intestines, liver, and skin also contain lymphatic tissue.
Secondly, what are the organs of the immune system? Immune System Organs. The key primary lymphoid organs of the immune system include the thymus and bone marrow, as well as secondary lymphatic tissues including spleen, tonsils, lymph vessels, lymph nodes, adenoids, skin, and liver.
Correspondingly, what are the major organs of the lymphatic system and their functions?
Male Lymphatic System Lymph nodes filter and transmit nutrients, lymph fluid, and waste between the body's tissues and the bloodstream. Lymphatic tissues such as the spleen, tonsils, and thymus contain high concentrations of white blood cells and are able to identify and destroy toxins in lymph fluid.
