What happens when an ulcer bursts in the stomach can you die?
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.
When the acid that digests food breaks through the stomach, it can burn through veins, and many other things. Stomach ulcers come from the food you eat, so you must eat certain types of foods.

you can also prevent a stomach ulcer by staying away from spicy foods,too much alcohol, smoking and a bacteria called HELICOBACTOR PYLORI. Some are also thinking if you can die from this disease.

Depends where the ulcer is - if it's somewhere along your digestive tract (i.e oesophagus downwards), then possibly, either due to infection or blood loss. However "death" is still an unlikely outcome, if the ulcer is known about and being treated. If it's a mouth ulcer, you're very unlikely to die from it if you're otherwise healthy.
Stay away from acidic foods. FOOD AND NERVOUS CONDITIONS DO NOT EVER CAUSE ULCER'S certain bacteria called H.PYLORI is the name and MUST be treated with antibiotics.Nsaids are another cause for an ulcer's A DOCTOR and make SURE he tests you blood for the H.pylori bacteria it is not treated correctly you can die from a PERFORATED ULCER a HOLE in the stomach intestines ect... it can also turn to cancer if left untreated.

Your stomach has a mucous lining which protects the stomach tissues from the acid. The acid is still dangerous; - If you vomit it up, it can burn your throat. - If the stomach mucous isn't being produced properly, the acid will damage the stomach lining, causing an ulcer. - After exiting the stomach through the pyloric sphincter, the acid is neutralised by alkaline bile. One other factor is human stomach acid is usually diluted…
you'll "die" whether you eat tuna or NOT. hypothetically, you can eat (tuna or otherwise) until your stomach bursts, but you have to be pretty determined to do so since your body has defenses against that happening. if you're referring to harm due to mercury content, the FDA presumably protects against that and would put a recall in effect if that were a possibility
