Information About Appendicitis

Appendicitis is inflammation of the appendix. The appendix is a small pouch attached to the beginning of your large intestine. Appendicitis is the most common emergency abdominal surgery in the U.S. It usually occurs when the appendix becomes blocked by feces, a foreign object, or rarely, a tumor.
