Appendicitis is a condition in which the appendix becomes inflamed, swollen or infected and filled with pus, causing pain in your lower right abdomen.
The appendix is a finger-shaped Tubelike structure attached at the beginning of the large intestine. It is a small tube of tissue that projects from your colon on the lower right side of the abdomen.
Although the exact role of the appendix in the body is not clear, studies suggest that it helps in maintaining abdominal immunity by fighting infections. It is one of the most commonly performed surgical emergencies of the abdomen and as much as 10% of the population develops appendicitis at some point.
Appendicitis is caused by the blockage of the appendix. The blockage might be caused as a result of the mucus that builds up within the appendix or may be due to the stool that comes into the appendix from the cecum. The blockage may as well be caused by various infections such as virus, bacteria, or parasites in the digestive tract or due to the swelling of the lymphatic tissue that lines the wall of the appendix.
