If you haven't gone to the doctor yet, you prolly should make an appointment. You could have old scar tissue from your original appendectomy, or some diverticulosis, or even a partial blockage that may get worse. Sounds like your normal peristalysis (movement of food in the intestines) is agitating something in there. Its probably not cancer, but you really need to get in and have it checked because regardless of what it is, it can get worse and you don't want to end up with a surgery to remove the intestine when there may be some diet modifications that will help.
I know its not what you want to hear but the docs really need to take a look around.
Good luck to ya.
