Depends on your main: symptoms. If knee is hurting and "gives way" when you walk, then a Scope surgery to get rid of the Meniscal tear; which also provides an opportunity to look at all other structures. Lesion on Cartilage, might look benign, But a biopsy could be done, to confirms it is Benign,
The bursitis/tendonitis, if still persists can be treated by the NSAIDs and PT/exercises, heat/cold packs etc.
