welcome to Health care magic.

1.No your report not mentioned about malignancy features ( cancer thing) - follicular cells are seen both benign and malignant but no features explained about the malignancy, but more about benign features.
2.Yes surgery is treatment of choice in this case.
3.After surgery a good followup is necessary, initially 6 monthly then yearly.
4.Look for any lymph nodal enlargement, and follow lab features.

Hope it helps you. Wish you a good health.
