$q.=' ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE '.$tablename.' set '.$columnname.'=concat ('.$columnname.',\'somthing to add to description\')';

Or maybe get rid of all that fiddly punctuation by using the PHP HEREDOC notation.
http://php.net/manual/en/language.types.string.php#language.types.string.syntax.heredoc

$q .= <<<ENDQ
 ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE $tablename 
 SET $columnname
 = CONCAT($columnname, 'somthing to add to description')
ENDQ;

Open in new window

You can get variable substitution with HEREDOC or literal strings with NOWDOC
