Let me ask you a question that I really like :)

A previously healthy 35 year alcoholic man present to the ER with hematemesis and frank blood after retching for a couple of hours, the patient has chest pain. Vital signs stable and there's no organomegaly nor weight of loss. What is the cause of the bleed?

A-rupture of a vein
B-rupture of an artery
C-esophageal ulcer
D-esophageal cancer
