This disease is a painful lesion of the stomach in the small intestine, called peptic ulcer. This disease is inflammation of the lining of the stomach caused by various problems (smoking, drinking, excessive use of pain reliefs), called gastritis. This disease is uncontrolled growth of the abnormal cells in the large intestine, called colon cancer.
