Here are the possible conditions based on your answers:

Hip Labral Tears

The hip is often referred to as a “ball and socket” joint. The ball at the top of the thigh bone (called the femur) fits into the socket (the acetabulum) of the pelvic bone. The hip labrum is a special ring of cartilage, or rubber-like tissue, that attaches to and covers the outer rim of the socket (the acetabulum). It helps to secure the ball in the socket and also gives your hip joint additional cushioning and stability. But the labrum can become damaged or torn, causing hip pain. Athletes are particularly at risk for these problems due to the repetitive forces they place on their hips.
