If the stone is not causing any specific problems, then it doesn't need any treatment - medical or surgical right now. Close monitoring is needed regarding any future symptoms including pain abdomen, severe acidity, indigestion, nausea, vomiting. In case of any of these features, repeat USG whole abdomen is need to delineate stone size and status and follow up with general surgeon or Gastrosurgeon. Regards.
