Grade II degenerative (mucoid degeneration) mr signal changes at posterior horn of medial meniscus. Does this imply a tear? Surgery?

In brief: Probably not

If the signal does not communicate with the articular surface it is not torn but you have degenerative changes which can lead to a tear in the future.
