Symptoms of Appendicitis


The appendix is a little finger-shaped organ attached to the big intestine on the right side of the abdomen. The appendix becomes swollen, inflamed, and packed with pus when you have appendicitis. Appendicitis is caused by a blockage in the appendix, which causes problems with blood flow, inflammation, infection, and pressure. The appendix might explode if not treated. Seek urgent medical help for these symptoms.
