Dear user, history of injury long back and dull chronic pain (soreness) at the same site after so many years suggest the possibility secondary osteoarthritis of hip joint. However complete diagnostic work-up like imaging(x-ray or CT) or arthroscopy is required for confirmation. So kindly consult a good ortho-surgeon.
Treatment option range from - physiotherapy, exercise, weight loss, topical (surface) application of pain-relieving ointments to surgical measures like arthroplasty and joint fixation depending upon the severity of symptoms.
Even though some doctors prescribe oral pain killers but their long term use is not recommended due to complications like stomach ulcers and kidney damage.
So please consult an ortho-surgeon.
Take care

Thanks for posting your query.
Lump which comes after exertion and disappears after rest seems to be due to muscle spasm.Doing stretching exercises.doing hot fomatation and applying muscle relaxant gel will be helpful.If it persist , get it evaluated by your doctor for thorough examination and appropriate treatment according to that.
Hope this will helps you. Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries.
Wish you good health. Take care.
