I've got wide hips but my right hip noticed more prominent and hurts when pressed.What could be that?
Need physical exam: To be sure of diagnosis. However, if you are speaking of the area on the outside of the upper thigh that many people call their hip, the greater trochanter area, you may have greater trochanteric bursitis which could benefit from a steroid injection and physical therapy w/ stretching.

Bursitis: Lateral (on the side) hip pain at your age is most likely a bursitis or something called iliotibial band tendonitis (itb). There is a band of tissue that goes from your knee to above your hip. The tissue can snap across the outside hip bone (greater trochanter) and cause pain. We see this in runners but other people can also get it. It is treated with physical therapy and maybe an injection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
