What does signal changes in the lateral and medial mensicus mean on an mri? What is a normal flexion of you knee suppose to be?

In brief: Hard to say

If increased meniscal signal extends to its surface it is likely a tear which may need surgery.
35% of middle aged to older people may have asymptomatic tears however. If the signal does not extend to the surface it is likely degeneration which is likely not clinically significant. I do not understand the second question.
