            Causes of appendicitis

            Who is at risk of appendicitis?

            Though it can occur at any age, teens and people in their 20s are more prone to suffer from appendicitis .
            It is more common in men than women. People with a family history of appendicitis are at heightened risk of developing it.

            How to diagnose appendicitis

            To diagnose, doctor can review symptoms and medical history, and can write a few lab tests and imaging tests.
            There’s no single test available to diagnose appendicitis.

            Blood Tests

            Urine Tests

            To rule out a urinary tract infection or kidney stones as a potential cause of your symptoms, your doctor may use urinalysis or urine test.

            Pregnancy Tests

            Ectopic pregnancy happens when a fertilized egg implants itself in a fallopian tube, rather than the uterus and can be mistaken for appendicitis. Doctor may perform a pregnancy test.

            Abdominal imaging tests

              Treatment for appendicitis

              In most cases, a surgeon must remove the appendix.

              Surgical options are:

              Laparoscopy

              This is a precise procedure in which there is minimal loss of blood and only a small incision. During laparoscopic surgery, surgeons insert special surgical tools into several smaller incisions. This option is believed to have fewer complications and a shorter recovery time.

              Open surgery

              In rare cases, a larger incision will be made so that the area inside the abdominal cavity can be cleaned. This happens if the appendix has ruptured, and infection has spread. The appendix has caused an abscess, or the patient has tumours in the digestive system or if the patient is in third trimester of pregnancy.

              After appendectomy, you may feel moderate pain in the areas where incisions were made. Pain or discomfort should improve within a few days. Doctor may also prescribe antibiotics to prevent an infection after surgery.

              Pneumonia in the lower right lobe of your lungs can also cause symptoms similar to appendicitis. To rule out, doctor can get a chest X-ray done and can also ask the patient to undergo an ultrasound or a CT scan of lungs.

              The ideal treatment for acute appendicitis is surgical removal. But a few of these home remedies may help ease the symptoms:

              • Drinking plenty of water throughout the day is essential for a healthy appendix.
              • A cup of ginseng tea twice daily, can also help in curing the pain and inflammation
              • Take 1 tablespoon of green gram soaked in water thrice daily.
              • Consume equal quantity of honey and lemon juice to prevent indigestion during appendicitis.
              • Add 2 to 3 drops of mint essence in water and drink once in every 3 to 4 hours daily.
              • Having a high fibre diet full of fruits and green leafy vegetables is the best way to avoid constipation.
              • Buttermilk is very effective in preventing the bacterial growth in the appendix
              • Drinking tea made from fenugreek seeds prevents the accumulation of intestinal waste and excess mucus.

              Appendicitis can cause serious complications, such as:
              A ruptured appendix spreads infection throughout abdomen. It requires immediate surgery to remove the appendix and clean your abdominal cavity. If your appendix bursts, you may develop a pocket of infection. A surgeon drains the abscess by placing a tube for two weeks through abdominal wall into the abscess. Antibiotics are given to clear the infection. Once the infection is clear, surgery is performed to remove the appendix.
