- Irritation or severe pain in the groin or hips;
- Tumors or pseudo-tumors;
- Metallosis (excess cobalt and chromium in the blood);

These complications can be life-threatening and patients may need to undergo
one or more revision surgeries. Injured patients often face significant
pain and medical expenses.
