Gastric & Ulcer
A Gastric ulcer is a hole in the lining of the stomach that has been corroded by acidic digestive juices in the stomach. Ulcer formation is related to H.pyloridus bacteria in the stomach, anti-inflammatory medications, and smoking cigarettes. Ulcer pain does not always tell how severe an ulcer is. Sometimes a small ulcer can be extremely painful while bigger ones are not. Ulcers are treated according to what type you have. If you have an Ulcer brought on by the H.pyloridus bacteria, then antibiotics are usually prescribed and most can be cured for good. Ulcers brought on by use of anti-inflammatory medications would require a different course of treatment. In any case, these should be treated urgently.
