Torn Posterior Labrum in the Shoulder

I got MRI results for my shoulder today and this is what the report reads...

The posterior labrum is torn from the posterior/superior to the posterior/inferior labral quadrant.  A small paralabral cyst is present along the posterior aspect of the posterior labrum.  

This doctor referred me to see someone else about the injury to go over some options.  I injured it about 4 months ago, and its been how it is now for about 2-3 months.  It doesn't affect everyday life, but I can't do certain activities such as golf, or hang on a bar.  It does hurt to put my arm above my head.

My questions are...

What type of questions should I ask the doctor?
How serious is this injury?
What are typically the chances of healing this without surgery?
Do you have any suggestions on what I should do about it?

Thanks,
Darren
