The most common site of pain associated with appendicitis is in the lower right side of the abdomen, between the navel and the right hip. Often, the pain starts out as an ache around the belly button and moves to the lower right side when the appendix is inflamed and its removal is necessary. The initial ache can change to sharp pains as tissue near the appendix becomes inflamed as well.
