How do I know if I have an ulcer?

Common symptoms of ulcers are pain, nausea, irritation, and loss of appetite. The presence of an ulcer can be confirmed by visiting your physician. He or she may order a breath test to evaluate for H. pylori, stool tests, or an endoscopy. An endoscopy is when a camera looks inside the throat, esophagus, and stomach for any ulcerations, inflammation, or bacteria that can lead to ulcer formation.
