In brief: Depends
It depends on which part of the labrum is affected and your activity level.
Most labral tears are degenerative and causes intermittent pain. If you do a lot of overhead activity, such as a throwing athlete, then you can have more pain and may require surgery. Either way, you should have your orthopedist or sport medicine specialist help you determine your best treatment option.
