ENDOMETRIOSIS: Endometriosis doesn't usually manifest as hip or leg pain, or as what are probable enlarged lymph nodes in your hips--you may have two problems. The treatment of endometriosis depends upon whether or not you want children. If not, at your age, a total hysterectomy with removal of tubes and ovaries, and eventual addition of estrogen therapy might serve. Please see a trusted Gyn ASAP.
