Can they usually do surgery for a lump on the thyroid?

In brief: Depends

If the lump is cancer or suspicious for cancer than surgery is the best option.
If the lump is benign (not cancer), than it can be left alone.

In brief: Thyroid surgery

A thyroid cyst can come to surgical resection, after several tests and therapies.
A fna or fine needle aspiration and pathology exam of the aspirate is usually the first step. Okay to ask your doc for answers. If you see a surgeon, take a friend with you to help with questions. Good luck.
