burning and pain left side below ribs

I have a burning sensation under ribs of left side with deep pain radiating from back kidney area on left side. I also have diahrea immediately after each time i eat anything. my stools sometimes is long and skinny. I get nausea but never vomit.pain and burning feels like it has moved lower. this has been going on over a year. I am 51 years old. This all
started with an uncomfortable feeling like there was a water balloon inside the spot that now burns and pains. very scared...dr exrayed me heard nothing back..upon visit he suspects diverticulosis.. does this sound like cancer..if so how long does one live after diagnosis?
