Pain while walking. Minor labral tear suspected. Do I need an MRI?

I have been having sharp pains while walking for 4 months. I ve seen a couple orthpedic surgeons who think it could be minor labral tears and there s not much to do about it. Recently I felt an oblong lump about 1cm long in the area where I have the pain. Do I need an MRI or can an ultra sound tell what it is? The pain is effecting the quality of my life.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for calling H.C.M.
As your orthopedics suggests that it could be a labral tear. But now it appears to be developed into a herniation of the bursa . So now you must take an M.R.I. for confermation of the condition. Ultra sound may not reveal any details use ful for the diagnosis and treatment.
I wish you a quick recovery .
Best regards.
