Cause of stomach burning? Ulcer??

Hi everyone. I'm new here. So.. I remember about 10 years ago while at a party and drinking, my stomach started burning and since then, over the years, certain foods and drink trigger it. Also, sometimes I notice that if I miss breakfast and don't eat until lunch, the burning sensation starts a little bit. Just a burning sensation in my stomach. I would just take Tums and it would go away. It didn't happen every time I ate or drank something, it just would pop up at random times a few times a year. I guess I should've brought it up to my doctor over the years but honestly, I never thought twice about it and just thought it was indigestion

About 2 weeks ago after dinner one night, it started and it was horrible. I couldn't even get in a comfortable position, Tums were a relief for about 5-10 minutes. I finally just went to bed and woke up that night with the same pain. It finally went away the next morning. Same thing happened last night. While it wasn't as bad pain wise, Tums werent working, couldn't get comfortable, etc. It's pretty much tapered off now. Could this be an ulcer? Or worse.. stomach cancer?

I'm 28 now, 2 kids, healthy.
