Can you have coxarthritis (arthritis of the hip joint) in your 20s?

And would this show up on an Xray? 

2. if so, what kind of results would an Xray yield if you have coxarthritis?

    I have never heard of the term coxarthritis. After looking it up, it really seems to be arthritis of the hip, nothing else. But the term coxarthritis, is something that is not used that often in United States. In fact, every reference I found, indicated it was from Hungarian in term.

    But arthritis in the hip, which is pretty common, can easily be detected using X-rays. In fact, many times, the degree of arthritis is better seen on X-rays then from MRIs What any diagnostic test is looking for is the narrowing of the joint space. As arthritis advances, the joint space will narrow up to a point where there is a bone on bone situation. At that point, generally joint replacement surgery is required. I have had that done on both of my shoulders and both of my hips due to advancing arthritis.

    Now, is in normal for someone your age? I would tend to say no. There are many reasons people develop arthritis, some even younger than you. Genetics can play a role, prior surgeries definitely has an impact as well as trauma from an accident.
