Brief Answer:
Definitely.

Detailed Answer:
Hey I have read your query.

Definitely at your age it's mandatory to consult doctor even after minor trauma as bones are not as strong.

If I am your treating doctor I would like to advise you x-ray of both hips in AP view and send me the report.

I also advise you to visit Orthopaedic surgeon if you can he may do your physical examination and advise you xray of hip.

Till then try to avoid overexertion.

You can take painkiller tablet or apply ointment locally.

Thanks,

Dr. chander XXXXXXX Singh.
