Peptic ulcer (ulcus ventriculi) is a damage of the gastric mucosa, mainly at the end of the stomach and in the upper third, which penetrates deeply into the stomach wall. If the wall is breached, then the juices, that regulate the digestion, and stomach contents penetrate into the abdominal cavity and may further cause peritonitis.
If the ulcer breaks a blood vessel, it causes bleeding in the stomach. Then a medical help is needed. It is possible to have several ulcers in the stomach at the same time. The typical sign of the presence of peptic ulcer is the pressure that occurs in the stomach after eating. If the ulcer occurs frequently, there is a risk of stomach cancer.
Ulcers are caused by different factors: psychosocial stress, excessive secretion of acid in the stomach, blood circulation disorder, different drugs (cortisone, some medicines for rheumatism and circulation).
