     Appendicitis

    Appendicitis is an inflammation of a finger-shaped projection from large intestine on the lower right side of your abdomen. 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 (the peritoneum) that can be fatal unless it is treated quickly with strong antibiotics.

    Treatment: Appendectomy can be performed as open surgery using one abdominal incision about 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10 centimeters) long (laparotomy). Symptoms: lower right side abdominal pain, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, inability to pass gas, abdominal swelling, low grade fever, a sense you might feel better after passing stool.

     Disease Statistics: Only 14% of respondents correctly identified the mortality rate of appendicitis when compared with other extremely rare causes of death. Fifty-four and 31% thought it was more common than death from lightning (40/year) and hunting-associated deaths (44/year), respectively. Eighty-two percent of respondents believed it "likely" or "very likely" that the appendix would rupture if operation was at all delayed, and 81% believed that rupture of the appendix would rapidly lead to severe complications and death.
