Minor surgery: A cyst like this may discharge its contents and get smaller, but will recur. Surgery is quick and easy but may not be indicated. It would be reasonable to have someone - maybe a dermatologist - look at it and see what can be done.

Cystectomy: The most common and effective way to remove a cyst is with surgical excision. The entire cyst, lining and contents, needs to be removed to prevent recurrence. Lancing a cyst is reserved for when they are infected. The most important part of any treatment is having the right diagnosis. Consider seeing a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon for treatment.
