Hip pain: At your age there are many possible causes. Some are relatively benign and some are more serious. You should have a hip exam by a healthcare provider and hip x-rays. This will rule out the more serious hip problems. Various forms of bursitis are treated with physical therapy and medications like ibuprofen.
