What is Appendicitis?

Appendicitis is a medical condition where the appendix becomes inflamed and filled with pus, causing severe abdominal pain. The appendix is a small 3 and 1/2-inch-long pouch joined to the large intestine on the lower right side of your belly (abdomen).Appendicitis typically starts with pain around the navel. Within hours, the pain travels to the lower right-hand side, where the appendix usually lies and becomes constant and severe as the inflammation worsens. Although anyone can develop appendicitis at any age, most often it occurs in people between the ages of 10 and 30. At Pristyn Care, we have the finest doctors and medical coordinators who will take care of you until you are relieved.
