Hard to say: If you sustained an injury, then yes, soft tissue damage is likely, involving ligaments or tendons. If this came about without injury, then there could be a space-occupying lesion. See your primary care physician for further evaluation, awaiting the ortho consult. An MRI may be warranted.

Hip pain: May be arthritis or avn. Check x-ray or mri. Iliopsoas tear less likely--usually from specific significant injury. Also upper lumbar disc with referred pain is possible.
