Gastric ulcers, also known as stomach ulcers, are painful bruises in the lining of the stomach. Peptic ulcer disease includes stomach ulcers as a subtype. Any ulcer that affects the stomach and other small digestive organs is referred to as a peptic ulcer. The thick coating of body fluid that protects your stomach from stomach-related secretions is reduced when stomach ulcers occur. This makes it possible for the stomach’s lining tissues to be consumed by the stomach’s acids, leading to ulcers. Although stomach ulcers can be adequately treated, if left untreated, they can worsen
