by Lawrence Hoberman

For some, this may occur after they indulge on something that they shouldn’t have. For others, however, it may be a constant annoyance that just won’t go away.

Advancements in treatment of ulcers… exploring the myths
by Aletha Olgesby, MD
Advancements in treatment of ulcers… exploring the myths “Ulcers always occur in the stomach.”
An ulcer is a defect in a body surface. An injury damages the surface tissue, leaving a raw, inflamed depression or “ulcer.” Peptic ulcer disease refers to ulcers that occur in the upper portion of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The majority of ulcers occur in the duodenum, which is the first division of the small intestine. Although less common, they also occur in the stomach and in the esophagus.
