Epidermoid Cyst on upper eyelid's inner corner -12 year old kid. Avoid/wait or, better to get the surgery done at a younger age?

MRI scan done. Cyst is about 1.5 cm size, close to the inner corner of the upper right eyelid. It does not hurt but visible and growing slowly since last around 4 years. Doctor said that the only way out is to remove it. However, the location of the cyst creates additional risks with surgery as many nerves between the eye and brain passes through this location. Surgery appointment already taken with an Oculoplastic Surgeon in Atlanta but as a parent, I am a bit hesitant, so asking this question.
