Enlarged appendix with no pain?

I had 2 different ct scans with the first result being early appendicitis and a 2nd ct scan the next day showing slightly less prominent appendix with the result being prominent appendix. It measures around 7cm

This was a few months. Every once in awhile I get dull ache on right side but that has to do with my posture sitting all day at computer.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Prominent appendix could simply mean it is a long appendix, it need not be inflamed or obstructed. But recurrent episodes of pain could be due to chronic appendicitis, more so if it is accompanied by fever, nausea, vomiting and malaise. The other causes for pain could be urinary tract infection, pelvic infections, renal colic and sometimes bowel infections. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
