General Information on Gastric Erosion
Gastric erosion is a sore or ‘raw’ area on the inner lining (the mucosa) of the stomach. The condition can present at any age and any gender, but tends to occur more often in men than in women.
Symptoms of Gastric Erosion
In some cases the erosions may produce no symptoms. However, symptoms that may present include:
Vomiting blood – Blood may be bright red or dark (black)
Blood in the stool – stool will resemble black tar
Treatments For Gastric Erosion
After your health care provider has performed a physical examination, medical tests may include blood and stool studies, and gastric x-rays. Treatment will generally involve drugs aimed towards reducing stomach acid productions. Stomach acid can exacerbate symptoms and prevent healing. Medication will allow the lining (mucosa) to repair itself. If you are experiencing symptoms similar to those listed above, contact your doctor immediately, as these may be signs of a more serious illness.
