Increased MRI signal ( increased fluid) usually means some degeneration of the meniscus which is a consequence of aging. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Mri shows oblique nondisplaced tear posterior horn and body medial meniscus, medial meniscal protrusion into the medial gutter. Will i need surgery?

In fact, the tear will most likely get bigger leading to additional damage if not taken care of soon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
