This is my first post in the Bones, Joints and Muscles section. About 4 weeks ago I started having pain in my right hip area. I felt it as I was walking up the steps with a few grocery bags. At the time I thought I had pulled a muscle and the pain would subside in a few days, the way a simple muscle pull would do.. It has not gone away and in fact seems to be getting worse. I haven’t fallen and nothing has smashed me in the hip but that’s how it feels! I looked for a bruised area, but nothing on the outside.
If it’s a pulled muscle, (the pain seems to radiate from my hip bone down to the thigh) does anyone know how long it would last and why it’s getting worse? I mentioned this to my Oncologist at our appointment on Monday and she immediately suggested I have an MRI with contrast (scheduled for Apr. 11th) of my abdomen and pelvic area. I wonder if she thinks it could be bone mets since I have liver and lung mets from my colon cancer. She didn’t give me any thoughts on that, but that’s what I think she’s thinking to rule it out or confirm. I’m not sure if an MRI would show a muscle pull?
