Sharp pain Left abdomen

I am feeling sharp pain in left abdominal region from yesterday. I got a CT scan done today which says focal area of bowel thickening, pericolic fat stranding is seen involving descending colon on left iliac fossa. Just want to know what causes this in general and what is the general treatment procedure?
