Hi my name is Dinesh. I am 52 years old and I have diabetes with a history of Heart disease (heart attack) as well. Recently I have been diagnosed with Peptic Ulcer. Now I know that it take a lot of time for a wound to heal for Diabetic patients. Now my question is since my ulcer is an internal wound, should I be concerned about it not healing. Sometimes I heard that the ulcer can turn into cancer. Is that a possibility? How often should I see a doctor regarding this? Which specialist should I see? I will appreciate any suggestions.

No, there is no possibility of a gastric ulcer turning into a cancer. Your regular physician can prescribe treatment for this.

Georgiagail, I was wondering where you got the information that a peptic ulcer has no possibility of turning into cancer. Everything that I just googled said that especially if you had HbPylori there is always a possibility of peptic ulcers becoming cancer. Did I just read your post incorrectly? I was just wondering.
Take good care,
