A 22-year-old male asked:

While playing bball, i got a knee to my femur 3 days ago in the "dead leg" region, been in a little more than moderate pain since, did i fracture it?

If walking...: And otherwise a healthy 22 year old would doubt that the femur is fractured. One does not need to fracture a bone in order to have significant pain. If concerned you can certainly have it x-rayed.
