I recently fell down my stairs. In an xray of my lower spine which dr said was fine, the xray tech saw a lump in joint of my hip. What could it be?

In brief: ? Contusion

Probably a soft tissue contusion. Ask the doc who ordered the x rays.

Listen to the doc. Xray techs are not trained in interpretation, though they may be right, I would consult my treating physician and simply ask to explain what the tech thought was abnormal. Maybe just bowel gas (I've seen that one confused by a well-meaning tech before).
