Appendicitis is an inflammation of the appendix, a finger-like glandular piece of tissue that connects to the beginning of the large intestine, usually at the lower right side of the abdomen. The appendix is a thin tube. Its length is 4 inches. It is present at the junction of the small and large intestine. People who have a family history of appendicitis are at increased risk of developing appendicitis.
The appendix is supposed to produce antibodies related to immunity. It can strike at any age, appendicitis is rare under age 2 and most common between ages 15 and 30. It is somewhat bigger and longer in children, whereas in the case of adults, it usually gets atrophied, is shrunk and shapeless. It is due to this shrinkage that adults have a greater risk of getting obstructive appendicitis.
