What causes vomiting?

My brother has had liver cancer for 3 years, yes it's amazing he has lived that long. His abdominal girth is 60 inches filled full of ascites, last night he started vomiting at 1am and did not stop until 7am, there was mucus in the emesis and also fluid which was brown, is it possible this is the end for him?

dear it is difficult to say until examination is done and it is depends on what stage is liver disease ,it is metastasis present or not.

right now he may be suffering from ascites probably peptic ulcer with ?? esophageal varices. I think I answered to your question if you have more questions feel free to ask.
