Thanks for posting your query.

If you still experience pain and tenderness over your butt after two weeks of injury, there might be a fracture.

I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination.

You may get the X-ray of the area affected under his/her guidance.

Let me know if you have any more concerns.
