It's up to you: Size is not a determining factor in epidermoid cyst removals. The location on the body, if the cyst bothers you, if it is intact or ruptured are more important factors in your decision. Epi cysts are benign and do not develop into malignancies. If it doesn't bother you, you can ignore it. You may want to be certain it's a cyst, however.
