Snapping in your hips should be taken seriously

Q. My son is 17 and over the last year he has had snapping in his hips. His right hip snaps more than the left. Sometimes it hurts when it snaps and sometimes it feels better after it snaps. We mentioned it to our pediatrician, who ordered X-rays, which he said looked normal. He said my son may have a labral cartilage tear of his hip and suggested that he see an orthopedic surgeon. My son says it does not hurt that much and he does not want to have surgery. We wondered what other suggestions you might have.
