Go see your doctor: Ulcers can occur anywhere & everywhere. I suspect that you may be referring to a peptic ulcer which can cause abdominal (stomach) pain. Best to go see your family doctor for evaluation, diagnosis & treatment. In meantime, you can try over-the-counter antacids (like rolaids & tums), h2 blockers (like zantac, (ranitidine) Pepcid & axid) & even ppi (like Prilosec & protonix).
