Top 6 Scaly Abdominal Bump Causes

  1. 1.Acute Stomach Ulcer

    A peptic ulcer is a sore in the lining of the stomach or the first part of your small intestine (the duodenum), which causes pain following meals or on an empty stomach.

    You should go see your doctor in the next few days for a sick visit. He/she will assess the need for certain tests (such as for a bacteria in the stomach and/or a procedure to take a picture of your stomach wall). He/she will definitely suggest taking an anti-acid medication, such as omeprazole, which you can take over-the-counter to help your pain.

    Pancreatic neoplasm affects the pancreas, an organ in the abdomen, and causes symptoms like abdominal pain, back pain, urine changes, fatigue, and weight loss.
