Ulcers

What Is An Ulcer ?

An ulcer is a discontinuity or physical rupture in the membrane of the body that causes hindrance in the function of that organ. Ulcers occur in the epithelium or the mucous membrane of the skin surface. An ulcer may form in different parts of the body such as stomach, esophagus, small intestine or mouth.

What Triggers The Formation Of Ulcers ?

  • Bacterial infection (H. pylori)
  • Long term use of NSAIDs
  • Excess of acid production (hyperacidity)
  • Genetic factors
  • Stress
  • Smoking
  • Certain foods
  • Lack of water

How Would You Know If You Have Ulcers ?

  • Common symptoms include burning sensation or pain
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Not wanting to eat because of pain
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Acid reflux
  • Heartburn

What Should You Do In Case Your Symptoms Worsen?

  • Usually the symptoms improve in a day or two’s time. However, in case they persist and it becomes impossible for you to eat anything, make sure you see a doctor.
  • Your doctor shall examine you physically and recommend a few tests (such as blood test, stool test or breath test) to confirm the presence of ulcers.
  • In case of severity, the doctor may also suggest an endoscopy to check for the ulcers in the stomach followed by an endoscopic biopsy.

What Are The Available Treatment Options?

  • The treatment entirely depends on the severity of the ulcers. Most of the ulcers can be cured non-surgically.
  • Your doctor may suggest antibiotics and anti-fungal medicines in case the ulcer is caused due to infections.
  • The over the counter drugs shall help to neutralize the acid produced in the stomach.
