Disc dessication

I have a neck pain and it is reflecting in my right hand.  We approached the doctor and MRI report  as below.

Disc dessication at all levels except C7 - D1
Right paracentral disc extrusion at C3-C4 level causing indentation of ventral thecal sac and abutting the right existing nerve.
Broad based posterocentral disc protrusion at C5-C6 level causing indentation of ventral thecal sac
Left paracentral disc extrusion at C6-C7 level causing indentation of ventral thecaal sac on left side .

How bad is the situation.  Is there a surgeey required ? Will it get worse
