GASTRIC ULCER

 

GASTRIC ULCER  

Gastric ulcer, a type of peptic ulcer that is specifically located at the antrum (a portion before the outlet which is lined by mucosa which does not produce acid) of the stomach.

 Burning pain after an hour of eating is associated with this disease. Eating is not helpful at all but rather it aggravates the pain because acid secretions increase at meal time.

Vomiting relieves the pain for acid is expelled out by vomiting. And because of this, a person with gastric ulcer may experience weight loss. Risk factors and management is the similar as in the peptic ulcer.
