This condition has become quite common in young adults due to alcohol abuse. Steroid abuse is common to build muscle mass. Gym instructors and news papers create hype about six pack muscles of celebrities. Younger generation without understanding the risk involved, start taking heavy doses of steroids, and in bargain start getting hip pain.

Alcohol abuse and steroid abuse cause stoppage of blood supply to hip ball (Femoral head) causing it to shrink.This condition is called Avascular necrosis.  This leads to altered shape of the ball, which in turn leads to severe hip arthritis, giving excruciating pain.
