Duodenal ulcer is damage to the intestinal mucosa. The duodenum is the initial part of the large intestine and is connected to the exit from the stomach. The ulcer can be drawn deep into the intestinal wall. If the wall is punctured, the contents of the intestine penetrate into the abdominal cavity and can further cause inflammation of the peritoneum. If the ulcer ruptures a blood vessel, bleeding occurs and in that case seek medical help immediately. A typical sign of a duodenal ulcer is a penetrating pain exactly two hours after eating or at night.

Duodenal ulcers are caused by various factors: psychosocial stress, excessive secretion of acid in the stomach, circulatory disorders, various medications. The risk of the disease is higher in smokers as well as in people who work in shifts and in certain professions (in transport, traffic, chemical industry). An unhealthy lifestyle encourages the formation of duodenal ulcers. It has been observed that some medications can also cause stomach ulcers. If old ulcers are not completely cured, bowel cancer can occur.
