When should I call the doctor about a hip labral tear?

While hip and joint pain usually isn’t life-threatening, it can significantly affect how you live your life. Any hip or groin pain that doesn’t go away after a few days should be evaluated by a medical specialist. If you have sudden or severe pain in the hip or groin, call your doctor right away.
