Pain over greater: The symptom of hip bursitis is usually over the greater trochanteric region or on outside of the upper leg. One may have some pain radiating down the outer part of the leg to the knee. Also, when one lays on the affected side, it may be uncomfortable. Best treatment is exercise, aspercreme to the area, or NSAIDS. If they do not work a cortisone shot may be of benefit.

Swelling pain: There is more than one bursitis site around the hip. The most common birsa is the trochanteric bursa. This is on the side of the pelvis. There can be pain, swelling, redness, warmth in the area.
