In brief: Many possibilities

Many different problems can cause left lower abdominal pain, some minor (irritable bowel), some serious (diverticulitis, kidney stones, colon cancer).
In order to get to the bottom of this, a complete history must be taken, followed by a careful physical exam, lab tests, and other tests which may include x-rays and/or endoscopy. Please make an appointment to see your primary care doctor.
