For the past year, I have had an upper

Patient : For the past year, I have had an upper right sharp pain. It feels like it's in my R lung. It comes and goes. But for the past three days, it's been a constant dull pain along with intermittent sharp pains. A long with that I have been very neausous and for the past two weeks have not had an appetite what so ever. I have to force myself to eat. And for the past two days, when I do eat a little something, if it doesn't make me sick I'll have diarrhea afterwards. It's like the little food I'm getting, my body isn't processing. And I have epilepsy, my seizures have been well controlled and now all of a sudden I'm having them again. I've done some research online and the only thing that pops up associated with sudden appetite loss and losing 8 lbs in 2 weeks is cancer! I'm terrified, please help.
