Duodenal ulcer: It is a sore that forms in the lining of the small intestine just beyond the stomach (duodenum). The stomach makes a strong acid that kills germs and helps you digest food. To protect themselves against this acid, duodenum cells make a barrier from mucus. If this barrier is damaged, an ulcer can form. The main cause of this barrier damage is infection with bacteria (H. pylori), medicines like NSAIDs or painkillers (aspirin, ibuprofen). If you have a duodenum ulcer, you might have symptoms like have pain in the stomach or abdomen (this might come and go and is relieved by taking an antacid), indigestion, nauseous, feeling full after taking a small amount of food, bloody or black stools.
