Appendicitis

Learn about appendicitis, its cause, symptoms, and treatment

Appendicitis is the medical term for a potentially serious medical condition in which the appendix becomes swollen (inflamed) and filled with pus. If left untreated, the appendix will burst, spreading infection to the lining of the abdominal cavity and causing it to swell (peritonitis).

Due to the time-sensitive nature of this condition, surgery to remove the appendix (appendectomy) is almost always the first and only course of action.
