Gastric ulcer

Gastric ulcer

Gastric ulcers are ulcers that are found in the lining of the stomach. These ulcers may be due to the prolonged use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and may also be due to bacteria. Symptoms include vomiting of bright-coloured blood, passing of dark-coloured stools and sharp abdominal pain that does not go away. Medications to coat the lining of the stomach is often prescribed while ulcers caused by bacteria are treated with antibiotics. Modifying a patient’s diet is important.
