Are ulcers dangerous?

Ulcers can be dangerous if they are left untreated. Not treating an ulcer can lead to very severe complications. If the ulcer gets large or deep, and it erodes into a vessel, that can lead to a very life-threatening bleed. If the ulcer gets even larger, and it subsequently leads to a perforation or a hole in the bowel, it could lead to significant complications, and even death.
