Thickening of distal stomach wall/back pain

About 2 months ago, I developed a pain in my right lower back. I had a CT scan basically checking for kidney issues My kidneys were clear, but a 6 cm thickening of my distal stomach wall was found.
When I looked up what that meant online, the first thing that came up was cancer, but what else could it be?
I have gastroparesis and in the midst of my GI dr diagnosing me, he performed a colonoscopy which he found 2 precancerous tumors, that was in October of 2013.
Currently, I have a little bit of bloating and sometimes constipation, but I have no nausea or vomiting. just wondering if anyone here has had a similar experience.
I'm checking in with my GI doctor tomorrow. I'll let you know what happens.

The my gi dr agreed with my primary dr that an endoscopy needs to be done. Its going to be done with the already planned colonoscopy on August 22.
