Hip Pain: Cancer Versus Osteonecrosis

I was seen by two orthopedics who said my bone scan and MRI's showed a lot of fluid in the bone marrow around the hip. The bone was slightly worn. They think it's early state necrosis - but - one of the reports from the radiologist mentioned possible cancer - but dr. still say probably necrosis even though it did not totally seem that that. What is interesting after taking just one Aleeve the pain was much better. Yet, my hip still does not move correctly. I just started phyiscal therapy too - to get my body more in alignment and got orthotics. Anyone else with hip bone cancer have anything like this? Thanks

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It seems necrosis. You would need pain killers and rehabilitation excercises.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
