Yes: Hip pain can start in the groin and can travel down the front of the thigh portion of the leg to the knee. I have seen patients that have had arthroscopies on their knees only to find out that the problem was in the hip.

Back, hip or knee: Depending upon exact location and pattern, this may be nerve mediated pain from your back. (lumbar disc herniation for example). Disease of the hip or knee can also cause these symptoms. The treatment depends upon the underlying cause.
