    Stomach ulcers are breaks in the internal lining of the stomach. These can present with bleeding, pain, rupture or vague discomfort. They are thought to be related to infection by Helicobacter pylori, too much acid in the stomach or sometimes no identifiable cause. If you are experiencing symptoms of abdominal pain, nausea, bloating or discomfort before/after meals, then consider seeing a surgeon with regards to organising a camera examination of the stomach (panendoscopy or gastroscopy)
