Caption: Appendicitis. Computer artwork of a male human torso with an inflamed appendix (appendicitis). At bottom left corner, the appendix appears as the narrow finger-shaped tube branching off the large intestine (colon). The appendix is glowing yellow indicating the region of pain. The man also has his hand over this region. The cause is usually not known but it may occur because a lump of faeces is obstructing the appendix, or because of a worm infestation. Symptoms include pain in the lower right side of the abdomen, fever and vomiting. Treatment of acute appendicitis is usually appendicectomy, the surgical removal of the appendix.
