Appendicitis is a medical condition that causes inflammation in the appendix organ or appendix. This medical condition can also be referred to as appendicitis. The appendix is a small, thin pocket-shaped organ, measuring 5 to 10 cm in length that is connected to the large intestine. Generally, a person with appendicitis can experience abdominal pain in the lower right area.
In addition to lower right abdominal pain, a person with appendicitis can experience a number of other symptoms, such as decreased appetite, abdominal pain in the pit of the stomach, nausea and vomiting, fever, body feels weak, stomach feels bloated. In conditions of acute appendicitis, severe abdominal pain can occur suddenly in the lower right, which generally does not improve with the consumption of anti-pain such as paracetamol.
It is recommended to consult a doctor regarding further examination and management. Appendicitis can be enforced by physical examination and investigations such as blood tests that show a high white blood cell count, urine sample examination, imaging tests such as ultrasonography.
