Traumatismo o enfermedad del estómago

La úlcera es una lesión semejante a un cráter en la piel o en la membrana mucosa producida por una condición inflamatoria, infecciosa o maligna. Para evitar la irritación de una úlcera, una persona puede tratar de eliminar ciertas sustancias de su dieta como cafeína, alcohol, aspirina y el consumo de cigarrillos. Los pacientes pueden tomar ciertos medicamentos para suprimir el ácido estomacal que provoca la erosión del revestimiento del estómago. Se puede usar terapia endoscópica para detener el sangrado de la úlcera.
