Overview

Gastritis is the inflammation of the stomach lining (gastric mucosa), usually triggered as a reaction to some bacterial infection. It may involve sudden and severe inflammation (acute gastritis), or long-term inflammation, lasting for years (chronic gastritis).

In forbidden cases, gastritis leads to stomach ulcers with an increased risk of stomach cancer. The condition is known as Erosive gastritis. However, in most cases, gastritis isn’t severe with patients quickly recovering with treatment.
