Peptic ulcer disease

Peptic ulcer disease

Peptic ulcer disease (stomach ulcers) is a stomach condition in which sores develop along the smooth lining of the stomach. The most common symptom is a burning pain located along the centre of the abdomen. There may also be vomiting of blood, passing bloody stools, sharp pain in the stomach, which worsens over time. Causes of peptic ulcer disease could be an infection by the bacteria Helicobacter pylori and the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. A gastroenterologist can diagnose this condition through blood tests and a gastroscopy.
