Brief Answer:
Probably osteoarthritis of the hip joint!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for contacting us at healthcare magic.

This pain is suggestive of osteoarthritis of the hip joint. You will need imaging studies such as X-rays and CT-scan to establish the exact nature of the damage and propose a plan to address this. I recommend you bring this up to your doctor during your next routine visit for further evaluation and management.

I hope this guides and helps. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me as you please.
