Is This Hip Pain bursitis, or something worse?

Since January I have had hip pain after sitting in one place for more than 20 minutes, usually later in the day rather than in the morning. My doc said "bursitis" and gave me a cortisone shot and x-ray that was negative. As I continued to have the pain, he sent me to Physical Therapy, and I have finished up treatments, and I take 4 Ibuprofens every 8 hours, but they have not helped. Is it common for this to last more than 9 months, or is there some worse cause that I should be checking out, like bone cancer? It would seem bone cancer would hurt on a random basis, like when I am walking, and it does not.
