when i lift my left leg and bring it down there is a dull knock / click partial to the center-left area in my pelvis

when i lift my right leg and bring it down it NEVER does this

this only happens if i relax my upper torso and hunch over slightly
while attempting this simple movement on my left leg

i had mri previously with results of medial plica syndrome and joint effusion in my left knee - after a jogging injury in 2010

is there a way to correct this through surgery or strength training on my quardiceps?

kind regards,

A click without pain may be normal but a painful clunk is more serious. Please see your surgeon and get x-rays done. See what your surgeon thinks. A knee issue will cause a click in your pelvis.

is this serious?
