What is femoral acetabular impingement - cam type?

The hip joint is made up of the ball (femoral head) and the socket of the hip. CAM type impingement is the presence of a bump on the surface of the ball which hits (impinges) on the rim of the (acetabulum) socket causing hip/groin pain and limited range of motion. This can lead to arthritis.
