Where is the Adrenal Gland Located?

In the body we have two adrenal glands and they are located on top of the two kidneys. They are triangular in shape, orange colored and each is about three inches in length and about a half inch high. The glands both have two parts, namely the adrenal medulla which is in the center area and the adrenal cortex which is in the outer part. The adrenal glands work along with the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus in producing and releasing hormones.
