Labral tear: The shoulder is a ball and socket type joint. To maintain stability, there is a cartilage circular structure that holds the ball in the socket in some what of a suction cup mechanism. This structure is called the labrum, and it sounds like you have torn it. To maintain stability in the shoulder, surgery is often required which involves an arthroscopic repair if the labrum.
