User :   I have right hip pain for about a week now after raking leaves i noticed i am 29, and it says on the internet it could be colon cancer or bone cancer
User :   29,220lbs 5'10
Doctor :   what do u mean by "raking leaves "
User :   i was raking leaves with a rake
Doctor :   at the age of 29 , bone or colon cancer is rare
Doctor :   ok
User :   it does not hurt when sitting or laying down just when stretching it or walking just a little
Doctor :   this is nothing serious as cancer
Doctor :   this is just strained back due to the work done outdoors
User :   it is not the back that hurts just the right side of hip
Doctor :   just apply some icepacks for a few days with adequate rest
Doctor :   to the affected area
Doctor :   the back muscles are attached to the back of the hip bone
User :   oh okay how long does it usually take to go aways
Doctor :   and as u try to rake the leaves of the tress u need to stretch upwards
Doctor :   and doing this u can strain your muscles attched to that part
