Helicobacter pylori is a bacterium that is located inside the stomach causing stomach mucosa and duodenum infection. This bacterium is responsible for many of the gastrointestinal diseases such as gastric ulcer, duodenal ulcer, chronic gastritis and some tumors such as stomach cancer or gastric lymphoma.
Symptoms that it may cause although they are not usually presented are: abdominal pain, nausea, acidic feeling or a sense of fullness causing a lack of appetite.
The most accurate test to diagnose this disease is the upper endoscopy of the esophagus, stomach and duodenum.
The antibiotic eradication treatment is highly effective.
