Peptic and duodenal ulcers are sores or lesions that develop in the stomach lining.

Peptic and duodenal ulcers are conditions where the lining of the stomach or the duodenum, the first portion of the small intestine, develops sores or ulcers that are extremely painful.

The tissue is susceptible to harm from acid from the stomach if the protective layer is compromised by several kinds of circumstances. Your doctor will first get a thorough history of your symptoms and risk factors, including how long you’ve had indigestion and pain and how intense it is, whether you’ve recently lost weight, what prescription and OTC medications you’ve been taking, how much you smoke and drink, and whether anyone in your family has ever experienced Peptic and Duodenal Ulcers.
