Hi,
How are you? Inflammation in the inner lining of the intestines such as the rectum or colon may becomes severe, breaking through the inner lining to form ulcers. It is important to differentiate the ulcers whether they are  ulcerative colitis or  Crohn's disease. Ulcers can be diagnosed by directly viewing the lining of the intestines. Endoscopy,  esophago-gastro-duodenoscopy (EGD), X-ray studies like "small bowel follow-through" (SBFT) and CT scan may help with the diagnosis. The treatment of ulcers  is aimed at decreasing the underlying inflammation with various medications and sometimes surgery. Have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
