Appendicitis is. a serious medical condition due to the inflammationof 'appendix'
Appendix is a small protruding part at the end of large intestine inside our abdomen. It is a tube like tissue about three and half inches long. There appears no significant or exact function of appendix to our body.. It is a rudimentary part. As of now it is taken to be a vstgial organ-an organ that is left out from the earlier species during mutation or evolution.
An untreated infection or inflammation of appendix (appendicitis) can result in its burst and spreading infection to mother organs nearby in the abdominal space.
Abdominal pain starting from centre and moving to lower side is the early signal. Pain can be sharp and intolerable, causing nausea, loss off appetite and some other accompanied symptoms like fever, abdominal swelling and blockage.
Appendicitis is treated by surgical removal(appendectomy) in most cases. This is because removal does not create any loss of functionality as it is a vestigial organ.
