Hip injury, discomfort on walking, broken movable bone. How to cure my injury?

I was skateboarding Today and I fell on the right side of my hip, and since then. When i move my right leg. A bone on the side of my hip moves around uncomfortably. I can manage to walk, but the pain is quite uncomfortable. I am not sure what bone is moving around, but it is closest to the skin, directly on the right side of my hip. And has barely any muscle covering it. I am hoping that this injury is fixable, and I would like to know if there is anything I can do to fix my hip. Thank you very much.

Thanks for your query.

Your history suggest that probably there is dislocation of your hip joint and which you feel is most probably the head or greater trochanter of femur. posterior dislocation of hip is more common that anterior dislocation. It is also of utmost important to exclude the fractures of the neck of femur or rim of acetabulam. Therefore i ask you to go for a x-ray of hip joint both ap and lateral view to exclude fractura. If there is only dislocation without fracture some maneuvre may be done to correct it without operation. Otherwise operation should have been done. Consult a orthopedic surgeon, get locally examined and take his opinion.
Thank you.
