Depends on location: Bursitis is inflammation of a fluid-filled sac around joint. It usually is a temporary condition, associated with an injury, overuse activities and (rarely) infection. It can be treated with rest, cortisone/steroid injections, anti-inflammatories, rehab. Exercises, icing, etc. Your question implies that the patient may be pregnant. Treatment options must be customized to avoid harm to the fetus.
