These excess secretions form adrenal tumors, which can be either benign or malignant, but it can be difficult to distinguish between the two. The two adrenal glands are located just above the kidneys and help to protect the body against stress. Many...

Q: 

What Is The Function Of The adrenal Gland?

The adrenal cortex produces corticosteroids like cortisol, aldosterone and androgens. The medulla produces catecholamines like epinephrine and norepinephrine. They are located above the kidneys and excrete various hormones and are primarily responsible for regulating stress in the body....
