I'm not saying I know for sure but I believe at the C6, C7 level (the area where your neck meets your shoulders) there's a small gap like area between the dics with a buldge. Buldges are fairly common and usually surgery isn't done unless the buldge completely herniates to the point where it affects the spinal alignment. The other buldge that may require surgery is when it is an anterior (inner) one that compromises the spinal cord. The posterior (outer) buldge is not likely to affect the cord unless it gets big and messes with the vertabrates alignment. The most serious of all herniations is when the disc actually tears. Even the slightest tear will bring you to your knees in pain. It's an acidic like fluid that leaks out and could melt metal! PLEASE do not have surgery unless you have exhausted every treatment possible!
My best wishes to you and hope you aren't in too much pain.
