I had an MRI done on my right knee and
Suggests a meniscus tear.
Thanks for posting your query.
An oblique signal abnormality in the posterior horn of medial meniscus is suggestive of a tear of the posterior part of the medial meniscus of the knee.
If this is a full thickness tear then surgery is the only option. In case it is less than partial thickness tear with no inflammation then conservative treatment can help.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Can be due to plica excision.
Thanks for writing again.
I have seen the attached report. Oblique signal deformity with no evidence of displaced distal fragment suggests there is no tear. The signal deformity is due to plica excision. The pain that you have can be related to scarring or decreased joint lubricants. Taking regular joint lubricant supplements and stretching exercises will help.
Hope my answer is helpful.
