epiepidermoid cyst! help!?

about 4days ago I had a horrible pain in my right testicle. I found out I had a cyst in my right testicle  the proper name I was diagnosed with is an EPIDERMOID CYST.  they said its about 1cm and  they don't know if it is cancerous or not yet. tomorrow Monday april 1st I will  go see a urologist so he can do a biopsy. I am really scared because I do not know what to do when I receive my options from the doctor. what are the best and safest solutions to removing an epidermoid cyst from a testicle? plus he wants to remove the entire right testicle before even  finding out if I have cancer or not,  is that the right thing to doshouldn't he simply take a piece of the cyst then go from there not remove the entire  thing at once?? someone help please!!!
