Does a medial meniscus displacement mean that there is a derangement at that menicus? How is it fixed the displacement?

Surgery. Unless the tear is very small, the meniscus often does not heal. Surgical repair or removal may be required.
Medial meniscus. Tears (displacement) of the medial meniscus generally do not have to be repaired. If you simply wait (assuming you are not a high-performance athlete), your body will heal it. Healing occurs by slow dissolution of the displaced (now useless) cartilage. All that surgery does is to remove this cartilage fast.

Can a medial meniscus displacement get worse if nothing is done? Does swelling cause increased pain? Please help

Yes to both possibly. Meniscal tears can certainly get worse as the tear propagates or continues to catch at the torn edge against the moving surfaces of the femoral and tibial joint surfaces.
