Intestines, ulcers

An ulcer in the upper (small) intestine is a raw place or sore in the lining of the part of the intestine that connects to your stomach. This kind of ulcer is also called a duodenal or peptic ulcer. Normally the lining of the intestine normally keeps the intestine from being hurt by stomach acid and digestive juices. If this protective layer breaks down, stomach acids can damage the walls of the intestine and cause an ulcer.
