I Have A Lump On My Eyelid

If this is a stye, it will ordinarily resolve with this conservative treatment. It's very unlikely that you have a round worm infection of the eyelid. If you are concerned, have an eye md check your eyelid. ...Read more

Maybe: It all depends on what the lump is, but if it is solid chances are it would need to be surgically removed. Of course this can be done with relative ease and minimal discomfort, depending on the size of the lump and where it is on the lid... ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
