What do I call a man's Adam's apple when he's not from Earth and therefore has never heard of Adam or Eve?

Wikipedia calls it the "laryngeal prominence," but that's much too anatomical, especially for a scene that's meant to be romantic. His Adam's apple is bobbing with nervousness as he swallows, shortly after being reunited with the woman he loves.

Is there another term for it? Something non-scientific and non-Biblical in origin?
