Truncation would mean a "cutting short" - the normally rounded edge is torn or worn away.

This is my knee i need to know what happen to it
Expert:  Family Physician replied 10 years ago.
Did you ever have any injury to that knee? What kind of work did you do?

Any sports in the past?
Expert:  Family Physician replied 10 years ago.
There are a number of different types of meniscus tears. Generally, the type of tear you describe is caused by deterioration in the cartilage with age. (You are young, that is why I asked about previous sports injury/jogging etc)
