I suffered a meniscal tear, can I start training again?

My knee got injured 5 months ago, mainly due to weights lifting.
I got an X-Ray done and it didn’t show anything, so after I proceed to get a MRI where it says that it may be a ‘lateral meniscal tear. Minimal knee effusion’.
Should I be careful to go back to training with weights and running? Should I follow some sort of treatment?

Use knee brace to avoid injury during exercise.
Avoid excessive weight lifting and squatting..

Hi,
This is nothing to worry about ,but you should consider ficusing on quadriceps strenghtening exercises and vastus medialis obliques training.
