What happens if a stomach ulcer pop?
Once you have a stomach ulcer, it is very painful and you have a burning feeling inside.
For -burst- stomach ulcers without medical treatment, yes. When an ulcer bursts, blood may enter the stomach, causing blood loss, or stomach contents may enter the abdominal cavity causing sepsis. The ulcer may also break through to other organs, or be a sign of cancer. If the ulcer bursts, seek immediate medical attention. However, most stomach ulcers are just painful, and don't burst.
