Are hip bursa pains serious?
Serious in the sense of painful, then yes, but otherwise inflammation of the hip bursa (commonest being trochanteric bursitis) has no serious long term sequelae. Steroid injections can be the administered to help alleviate the inflammation and pain and very occasionally bursectomy (surgical removal of the bursa) may be required.
