In brief: Any symptoms?

Some disc herniations may be asymptomatic.
Would recommend a complete evaluation by a neurosurgeon. It is important to evaluate the amount of pressure on the spinal cord.

In brief: Can be serious

Radiculopathy from a c5-6 disc can cause pain and eakness in the right neck and sshoulder. Pressure on the spinal cord itself can cause problems with walking, balance and sensation well below that area (long tract signs).
