Ok, so after worrying about almost all types of cancers known to man in the last 5 months, I've started to focus now on a symptoms I've been having for 1-2 months: hip pain.
I first noticed it 1-2 months ago, can't remember exactly when because I ignored it at first. I had a pain in my right hip joint when I was lifting my leg sideways away from my body, at 90 degrees (like a dog peeing lol). I noticed it while I was doing side leg lifts exercises. I exercise very rarely but I'm pretty sure a month before those exercises, I didn't have this pain.
It was a mild pain so I ignored it, especially since it doesn't hurt when walking, running and most other movements ... so I basically forgot about it altogether... until 4 days ago, when I remembered it and raised my leg sideways again to notice the pain was STILL there.
The pain is a bit sharp and feels mechanical for sure. It doesn't limit my motion it's just uncomfortable. It's mostly in the same place, around the hip joint and hurts with a few specific movement and hurts every time when I make those movements. After forcing and testing my hip in all possible ways in the last 4 days, now it's more sensitive and it hurts with more movements than before.
It hurts when I lift my leg sideways, when I keep it lifted and rotate it & also when I stand normally and turn my torso to the right side (towards the painful hip) while keeping my legs pointing forward.
It never hurts when I don't move or when I walk etc. Never hurts at night.
I'm worried now that I have some bone cancer. :/ Now, I've been through bone cancer fears before and I read that usually it presents with a deep dull constant pain which is not what I have. But I worry that some tumor bone growth is causing my pain.
Funny enough, 2 weeks ago I also started to have a mechanical pain somewhere near my left shoulder plate. Only hurts with some movement. Now I can't believe I have cancer in BOTH these unrelated areas.
I've been to SO MANY doctors in the past 5 months, in the DOZENS. I just can't afford and wish that I didn't go again. Especially since I can't have X-rays done because I'm trying to conceive so no way I'll expose my ovaries to direct radiation. I might have an MRI but it's so expensive, I wish I could avoid all this
My bf tells me that I'm definitely fine and that I should not go to any doctor (he knows I always think about cancer and go to doctors and I'm always fine). My friend who is a medical resident told me I don't need to go to a doctor and that doesn't sound like a tumor.
Did you guys experience anything like that? What would you do? Do you think this sounds like a bone cancer??
I'm 28 yo female, healthy so far but always thinking I have cancer.
