In brief: Torn meniscus
Frequently a torn miniscus will not heal.
It is important to get medical advice, usually from an orthopedic specialist to determine the severity of the tear and whether or not surgery is necessary to get well.

In brief: They don't
A meniscus tear does not heal itself.
The torn portion needs to be removed and smoothed in order to re leave pain and ongoing inflammation in the joint.
