An ulcer is a lesion of the skin, mouth, throat, stomach or

intestinal tract.

An ulcer is an irritation of tissue, leading to tissue

breakdown. A stomach ulcer can start small but eventually eat a

hole through the stomach. A skin ulcer can start off as a scratch

and end up having infected tissue up to the bone.
