    When the appendix becomes blocked, by either stool, a foreign body, or cancer, Appendicitis occurs. Infection could also cause blockage, because the appendix swells as a reaction to any infection in the body.

    Appendicitis causes the appendix to become inflamed, swollen, and fill up with pus. It is characterized by worsening pain, vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, a fever, and many other uncomfortable symptoms. Many doctors think that there may be two causes for appendicitis, an infection or an obstruction. An infection can begin in the stomach, and then move it’s way to the appendix, causing the condition to worsen in that part of the body. An obstruction can be caused by a trapped stool in the appendix, causing the bacteria from the stool to grow and then infect the appendix.
