*Ulcer!* Ulcer!!

An ulcer is a painful sore that is slow to heal and sometimes recurs. Ulcers aren’t uncommon. How they appear and corresponding symptoms depend on what caused them and where they occur on your body.

Ulcers can appear anywhere in or on your body, from the lining in your stomach to the outer layer of your skin. Some cases of ulcers disappear on their own, but others require medical treatment to prevent serious complications.

the most common type of ulcer is peptic ulcers; which are sores or wounds that develop on the inside lining of your stomach, the upper portion of your small intestine, or your esophagus. They form when digestive juices damage the walls of your stomach or intestine.

Peptic ulcers are most often caused from inflammation after being infected with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) bacteria and long-term use of painkillers.

There are three types of peptic ulcers:

 gastric ulcers, or ulcers that develop in the stomach lining

esophageal ulcers, or ulcers that develop in the esophagus

duodenal ulcers, or ulcers that develop in the duodenum (small intestine)

The most common symptom of this condition is a burning pain. Bloating or the feeling of being full, belching, heartburn, nausea, vomiting, unexplained weight loss and chest pain are other symptoms that may occur.
