Possibly: It depends on the cause of the popping. You can have a condition called a snapping hip that is usually caused by tendons or muscles snapping over bony prominences in the hip area. These conditions do not cause permanent damage that would affect you when you are older. If the popping is due to something loose in the joint (a loose body) that could affect you if not removed.
