It is the disorder related to appendix in which the appendix gets inflammation and pain. It may occur at any stage of life and every gender can be affected by it.
The major cause of inflammation in appendix is the blockage of this blind ended tube. This blockage may occur by
Filling of tube by stool or any material
Cancer cell formation inside the tube
Major symptoms associated with this disease are following
Dull pain moving from upper portion of abdomen towards lower portion of the abdomen
