Bone cyst

I've had hip pain for the past 8-10 years (I'm 28, now). About 2 years ago I decided to check with a doctor and the saga began. I've been from doctor to doctor trying to figure out exactly what the problem/cause/cure. The best they can give me is that my joint has lots of scar tissue and a dime sized bone cyst. Basically, the prognosis is that I just have to wait til I get older and get a total hip replacement. Are there any alternatives?? I'm a active guy. I like to cycle and kayak and I love to backpack/hike, which is nearly impossible now, due to the pain. Are there any alternative therapies that I might be a candidate for?

thanks, stephen
