Medial Meniscus Displacement
Out of place:
My guess: displacement means it is pushed/displaced from its original location from some type of injury/trauma i.E a tear. If it is slight and not causing pain, you may not nee to do anything. If it is causing some discomort, motrin/aleve and physical therapy/knee rehab may help. If still persistent, you may need to see an ortho for a possible surgical correction.
Consult your doc...
