Stomach ulcer is damage to the gastric mucosa predominantly at the exit of the stomach and the upper third that penetrates deep into the stomach wall. If the wall is punctured then the digestive juices and stomach contents penetrate into the abdominal cavity and can further cause inflammation of the peritoneum. If the ulcer penetrates a blood vessel, bleeding in the stomach occurs and then medical help is necessary. It is possible for multiple ulcers to form in the stomach at the same time. A typical sign of a stomach ulcer is the pressure that occurs in the stomach after eating. If a stomach ulcer occurs frequently, there is a risk of developing stomach cancer.

Stomach ulcer is 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 stomach ulcers. It has been observed that some medications can also cause stomach ulcers. If old ulcers are not completely cured, bowel cancer can occur. Stomach ulcers are successfully treated today without surgery.
