In brief: Many Possibilites
Pelvic pain can be caused by a number of areas.
Some of the possibilites are just gas in the colon, diverticulitis, urinary problems, prostate issues, etc. These could be be benign conditions or they could be cancerous. The intermitent nature suggests gas but regardless you need a workup by a doctor including a good physical exam and history which will help tell what else you need to have checked.
