You can only know if a cervical ulcer is gone by having a pelvic exam. What do you mean by "checking it out. "

im assuming he checked if it was infected? he told me not to worry about it. if it is still there how is it removed

what causes them to appear?

A cervical ulcer would not be infected. It was most likely just a ruptured cyst. It would resolve on its own. Ulcers can form due to herpes or syphilis.
