This is characteristic of an irritated or inflamed chalazion which is caused by a blocked oil gland in the eyelid or it could be a stye which is an actual infection.. If so, it's best treated to avoid persistence of the lump. See your physician or an ophthalmologist for diagnosis & treatment. In the meantime apply warm wet compresses.
