Appendicitis is inflammation and reddening of the appendix. It is usually caused due to infection. Patients with appendicitis often have pain in the right lower abdomen. If untreated, appendix can burst, causing infection and even death.
Basic treatment is the surgical removal of appendix in a minor operation called appendectomy. The appendix should be removed before it ruptures and spreads.
