If you're having pain with most activities, enough to prevent you from doing things or needing to take pain medicines regularly, then you should have it treated. You need to see an orthopedic surgeon who has expertise in treating hip labrum, usually a sports medicine specialist, to determine if the hip is truly causing your pain and give you treatment options

A labral tear in the hip won't heal on its own. The pain will persist indefinitely until you have it surgically repaired. The sooner the better so you can get pain relief! Call around to different orthopedic offices to find specific doctors who specialize in hip labral repairs.

most would advise a trial of physical therapy and joint injection prior to a surgical procedure. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/hip-labral-tear/basics/treatment/con-20031062 http://health.ucsd.edu/specialties/surgery/ortho/areas-expertise/sports-medicine/conditions/hip/Pages/labral-tears.aspx
