Hello there. I can understand your concern. Appendix is a organ which is not of any use to our body. It wont cause anything even if removed. In cases of appendixitis, a surgery can be performed to remove the appendix but if its a stage of appendicular mass, immediate surgery is not possible. Kindly take medicines as suggested and consult a general surgeon in person for further evaluation and management. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain.

Hello. Appendix is an useless organ of our body, which should be removed when its inflamed. Otherwise it will go on repeating the same problem if appendicitis. Contact a surgeon. You should undergo operation for removal of your appendix. You can undergo laparoscopic appendectomy, which is near painless & scarless. Hope this helps.
