Despite the advances in the treatment and management, esophageal cancers continue to carry a dismal prognosis with an overall 5-year survival rate ranging from 15 to 25%. Delayed onset of symptoms and lack of effective screening methods and guidelines for diagnosis of the early disease contribute to the high mortality rate of esophageal cancers. Detection of esophageal cancer at their early stage is really a challenge for physicians including primary care physicians, gastroenterologists and oncologists.

Objectives: ‘Coffee ground’ vomiting (CGV) has classically been considered a sign of upper gastrointestinal bleeding. There is a paucity of data concerning endoscopic findings and outcomes in patients presenting with CGV. The aim of this study was to analyze endoscopic yield and 30-day outcomes in CGV patients. Methods: Analysis was performed over the period 1992–2005 and four groups were identified: CGV alone, hematemesis alone, melena alone, and hematemesis and melena.

Conclusions: In the largest study to date of symptomatic individuals under 50 years of age undergoing colonoscopy in the USA, advanced CRN was most often detected in the distal colon and was associated with anemia, but not with abnormal bowel habits or abdominal pain. We also found that patients with CRN under 50 years of age were more likely to be male, smokers, and obese. These findings should prompt further investigation of these risk factors alone and in combination.
