No: I imagine you mean about cancer. If you are really concerned, contact your oncologist to discuss your fears and perhaps have an exam. It's not unusual to have follow up scans after cancer - just to check. Do it if you have concerns. Building anxiety will not do you any good - I expect it will reassure you. I hope so. ...Read more

Any groin pain?: Any pain or limping with weight bearing/walking? Morning stiffness? If so consider hip joint problem. Consider labrum too. If groin muscles are sore perhaps a muscle strain. Bursitis of the lateral hip or gluteus medius/minimus muscle problem perhaps but you would have soreness of the lateral hip. Nerve issue can also cause weakness - look for numbness or tingling in other parts of the leg. ...Read more

Be safe : Hopefully what you are describing is just a contusion. But with "a lot of pain" in the context of a fall, a visit to your doctor is advised. Xray may be needed. ...Read more

Possibly: If you have tingling, numbness or inability to move your extremities; if you have deformity to bones or pain in bones when not moving, or if the pain does not decrease over time, or you passed out and fell, then yes, you should see a doctor for an examination. If you are able to walk, not fainting, and the pain improves over a few days, you should mention the fall at your next regular appointment. ...Read more
