In most people, the appendix never causes problems and never needs to be removed. If it becomes severely infected, it should be removed.

Does not having your appendix make you die at a younger age?

I do not think there has been any scientific study done on the effects of a life span after losing an appendix. Though they have done studies showing that your appendix is no longer needed, so getting it removed has no bad side effects. The only way you not having your appendix affecting your life would be if it bursts and u don't get it taken care of. A ruptured appendix can kill you if not taken care of usually rather immediate. So as of right now not having an appendix will neither kill you quicker or prolong your life. you die when it is your time and by w/e means it happens. Not having an appendix or having one wouldn't really matter if u get hit by a car tomorrow. So rest assured that you will live as long as u will live with or without your appendix.


How does Appendicitis affect the digestive system?

Appendicitis is a hemorrhage of the appendix. Without immediate treatment, it is fatal. However, treatment involves the removal of the appendix.

However, it has been recently discovered that the appendix serves as a "breeding ground" for the good intestinal bacteria. Without these, your immunity is decreased.
