Yes it can cause hip: Disc protrusion like the one you have can compress on the nerves in the spinal canal. This can cause hip pain and sometimes cause numbness and tingling related to nerve compression. You should be examined by a neurologist or neurosurgeon who can guide you further and provide medical or surgical treatment. Good luck
