Our expert says:
The esophageal varicose veins develop due to liver injury because of the alcohol. The liver cirrhosis causes increased pressure on the veins draining the liver. This can develop over years and will get worse with time. They can be dangerous as soon as it is noticed, as bleeding from these veins can be life threatening.
