I was just told that a displacement medial menicus root is not a tear but a antatomical variant. Is this right? Before surgery it wasn't like that?

In brief: Likely a tear

A displaced medial meniscal root is typically a tear, not an anatomic variant.
Still, anything is possible, and this can not be confirmed without physical examination, imaging, and surgical visualization.
