In brief: Not normal, but dep.

A displaced/fractured meniscus is not normal, but treatment or not really depends on you.
.If you are not experiencing pain or functional problem, you don't need correction. If pain or limitting function, then u need to explore your options--medication, physical therapy/rehab, and/or surgery... Consult doc/ortho if you have concerns.. Good luck.
