What is the treatment for chalazion cyst on the eyelid?

My son has a chalazion cyst in his upper eyelid, and it has not responded to hot compresses or gone away on its own -- it has been 5 months. I read that emu oil on the eyelid or chamomile tea bags can help dissolve the cyst, but have also read that surgery is the main option. Because he is only 9, it would involve general anesthesia. The cyst is large enough now that it is unsightly -- larger than a pea, but smaller than a marble. Advice?
