Hi there!

Fir first degree tears/ injuries usually conservative management is preferred with rest and anti-inflammatory medications for a few days, to be followed by physiotherapy to strengthen the knee muscles. Though there may be a higher chance of degeneration and arthritis as compared to the general population, with meniscal injuries it may be prevented/ delayed by avoiding excessive stress on the knee. I would suggest discussing the situation, the suggested management plan and the expected prognosis in detail with your treating orthopedician.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
