In brief: Meniscus Tear

With that kind of specific knowledge your must have had an MRI of your knees.
Without a knowledge of your symptoms and exam of your knees it is impossible to know wether you need surgery or not. The simple presence of a tear without any corresponding symptoms or exam specific to that area would not need surgery. Either would minimal or mild symptoms which resolve with rest and no surgical care
