Exocrine system: The exocrine system is a term that is sometimes used to refer to the large variety of exocrine glands and their functions in the human body. The exocrine system produces and excretes many different types of secretions through ducts. These secretions flow to the surface of the body or to the lining of a hollow structure in the body. The exocrine secretions are involved in many important functions, such as sweating, digestion and lubricating the eyes. There are many types of exocrine glands in the exocrine system. Examples include the salivary glands, liver, stomach, prostate, lacrimal glands, pancreas, sweat glands, sebaceous glands, and mammary glands.
A few examples of conditions that afflict the exocrine system include infection, ulcer, cancer, tumors, obstruction, genetic conditions and sebaceous cysts.
