A simple peptic ulcer won't turn into cancer but what caused the ulcer can. There have been studies that show that H. Pylori, a type of stomach bacteria, can cause cancer. Also, there are certain types of cancers that can cause peptic ulcers. The only way to know would be to have a biopsy done of the tissue on and around the ulcer.
