Appendicitis occurs due to bacterial infection and obstruction of the vermiform appendix, a tube-shaped extension of the large intestine (the colon). The appendix is usually blocked by calculus or feces, causing it to swell. However, in some cases, the enlargement of the lymph nodes is responsible for the inappropriate activity of the appendix. Due to bacterial infection (also very common in appendicitis), the lymph nodes begin to swell and press against the walls of the appendix, causing it to block.
The most common symptom for appendicitis is the pain that is felt in the abdomen. This pain usually starts in the navel and then gradually shifts to the right of the abdomen. It is usually very difficult to track and identify the exact location of pain when it is moving. Symptoms of appendicitis include fever, nausea, vomiting, chills, loss of appetite, and pain on being touched on the lower side of the abdomen.

Appendicitis usually occurs after a digestive tract infection, or when the tube connecting the large intestine and appendix is blocked by trapped feces or food. The causes of appendicitis may include invasion of bacteria or other microorganism.
