In brief: Ulcer
A duodenal ulcer is an ulcer located in the first part of the small intestine, right after the stomach.
This can be caused by many things, most commonly from NSAID use (e.g. Advil, (ibuprofen) motrin, aspirin) and bacterial infections (e.g. Helicobacter pylori). These are treated by endoscopy and acid blocking medications.
