You'll get varying opinions but I say treat now.  The meds are great with little side effects and shorter treatment times.  They will always be getting better but you will continue thinking about it until you get rid of it.  Start sooner than later.

Welcome new member. Personally I couldn't possibly offer a non medical opinion based on the limited information you have provided.
