Description

Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a type of bacteria. These germs can enter your body and live in your digestive tract. It weakens the stomach's natural protective lining making it more susceptible to damage from gastric acid.  After many years, they can cause sores, called ulcers, in the lining of your stomach or the upper part of your small intestine. For some people, an infection can lead to stomach cancer.
