Different Types of Ulcers Explained

Most people only know of two types of stomach ulcers...

Most people know about two types of ulcers before they get diagnosed with a more specific type of ulcer. Generally, people refer only to stomach ulcers and peptic ulcers. We explain what the difference is between these two, and we also explain more about the lesser known stomach ulcers.

Defining Stomach Ulcers...

The term 'stomach ulcer' is a pretty broad term that includes quite a few different types of ulcers. It gets a little confusing when you really start looking deeper into figuring out the 7 different types of ulcers found in the digestive system.

Mostly, ulcers are named after the location where they are found but, as with most things in life, there is an exception - the peptic ulcer. For instance a peptic ulcer can be found anywhere in your esophagus, stomach or duodenum.

So, therefore a peptic ulcer can also a be an esophageal, or gastric, or duodenal ulcer....confused? Let's try and simplify this for you!

Most Common Types of Ulcers

Peptic Ulcer
Any ulcer that is exposed to pepsin is referred to as peptic ulcers. Peptic ulcers are found in the lining of your stomach or duodenum. Pepsin is normally present along with hydrochloric acid in the stomach lining. There are many symptoms of peptic ulcers that are worth checking out.

Gastric Ulcer
When a peptic ulcer is in your stomach, it is called a gastric ulcer. The symptoms of gastric ulcers are more specific than peptic ulcer symptoms.

Duodenal Ulcer
When a peptic ulcer is in your duodenum, it is called a duodenal ulcer. This type of peptic ulcer develops in the first part of the small intestine. Some of the symptoms of a duodenal ulcer are interestingly quite opposite to those of gastric ulcers. Duodenal ulcers are the most common ulcers found in the Western world.

Lesser Known types of Ulcers

Esophageal Ulcer
This type of ulcer occurs in the lower end of your esophagus. Esophageal ulcers are often associated with a bad case of acid reflux, or GERD as it is commonly called (short for Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease).

Bleeding Ulcer
Internal bleeding is caused by a peptic ulcer which has been left untreated. When this happens, it is now referred to as a bleeding ulcer - this is the most dangerous type of ulcer. See your doctor immediately if you are showing symptoms.

Refractory Ulcer
Refractory ulcers are simply peptic ulcers that have not healed after at least 3 months of treatment.

Stress Ulcer
Stress ulcers are a group of lesions (or lacerations) found in the esophagus, stomach or duodenum. These are normally only found in critically ill or severely stressed patients.
