Duodenal ulcer is the ulcer of the duodenum. The main indication of duodenal ulcer is chronic pain. It takes place mostly when a person feels hungry but vanishes when the person consumes some food. However, in most cases, the pain continues even if the person consumes food. As this ulcer affects the process of digestion, the person starts losing weight as there is lack of absorption of essential element from the food. The person suffering from duodenal ulcer also experiences unbearable pain. In some cases, as the blood has to pass through the intestines, it also leads to bleeding. A person suffering from duodenal ulcer may find the presence of blood in the stools. However, this is mostly apparent in extreme cases and is quite rare.
