minor or minimal tears can heal. there is some evidence that prolotherapy may stimulate healing.

In brief: Need more info

Grading of meniscal tears is occasionally an MRI term used by radiologists.
For an orthopedic surgeon the important thing to know is whether the tear is complete or not. Grade 2 signal can imply just internal changes to the meniscus without an actual tear. Unfortunately, most tears occur in zones of poor blood supply and can't heal by that very fact.

In brief: Yes

This is typically an intrasubstance change within the meniscus and there is not a true tear. These can typically be treated nonoperatively.
