There are three parts of the trochanter. The greater trochanter is the quadrilateral protruding part of the femur. It is large and irregular in shape. The lesser trochanter is is a conical protruding part and varies in size from person to person. The third trochanter is oblong, round, or conical and is the smallest of the three parts.
