Prostate cancer>: Usually bone cancer is not intermittent and symmetrical so ask your doc to find the cause.

Too non-specific!: It copuld, but there are many causes including simple hip arthritis, trochnteric bursitis, etc. Also, prostate cancer first metastizes to the pelvis and spine, before peripheral bones! see your doc!
