Hey, A blockage in the lining of the appendix that results in infection is the likely cause of appendicitis. Surgical removal is the only mode of intervention . Prophylactic removal is not recommended as every one will not have this. Only inflammed appedix is removed by doctors , nobody removes normal one .sometimes symptoms overlap with one another , investigations and local examination helps in confirming diagnosis.
