No: An ulcer is an open sore. A seroma is an accumulation of serum fluid underneath the skin. Though they can both cause pain, a seroma is usually not weepy whereas an ulcer is.

They are the same: A stage 4 ulcer is the deepest type of pressure ulcer that forms over a pressure point due to diminished sensation and/or inability to move and relieve pressure. Examples are spinal cord injury patients or older stroke and debilitated bed-bound patients. Most vulnerable is the deepest (muscle) tissue, then the fat then the skin. This leads to the undermining seen at the base of the ulcer.See 3 more doctor answers
