Symptoms of Appendicitis
Subject: Health | Topics:

Appendicitis is a medical emergency that requires prompt surgery to remove the appendix. Left untreated, an inflamed appendix will eventually burst, or perforate, spilling infectious materials into the abdominal cavity. This can lead to peritonitis, a serious inflammation of the abdominal cavity’s lining that can be fatal unless it is treated quickly with strong antibiotics.
