    Usually, a CT scan or an abdominal ultrasound can't diagnose gastric ulcers very well. So, I am not very sure which 'scan' was done. Endoscopy does provide the diagnosis. I am also unclear as to what medications you have been taking for the above-mentioned problem and what other medications you take daily (as some medications can cause gastritis). Since you are 55 years old, you must have undergone a screening Colonoscopy by now. If not, it may be time for one.
