In brief: X-ray first.........
You need to determine the exact cause of you pain in this area, and once that is established, your dr. Will be able to recommend which direction to take.
Most likely, your discomfort is due to osteoarthritic degenerative changes, and treatment options are multiple. Oral nsaia, topical creams like voltarin gel, or even dmso, which has been used for years can be helpful. Consider acupuncture and pt.
