Dr. Ed Friedlander answered
43 years experience Pathology
Ulcer: Exact synonym so far as this pathologist is concerned. An ulcer is a lesion on a body surface (outer or inner) in which the epithelium and at least some of the underlying connective tissue has been lost specifically to necrosis (cell death) rather than just mechanical or chemical injury. All ulcer craters are covered with fibrin.
