In brief: Possibly

The results are not conclusive, but there may be prevention of dysplasia with Aspirin in patients that have barrett's esophagus.
If there is no contraindication to taking aspirin, i would recommend taking a baby Aspirin every day or on alternate days.

In brief: No

No, only by preventing acid reflux will help to heal the ulcer , and possibly prevent malignant transformation , Aspirin may precipitate bleeding
