There is a small lump in the middle of my upper eyelid, is it a stye?

There is a small lump in the middle of my upper eyelid, is it a stye?

If it is not bothering y0u by appearance or by symptoms, you can ignore it as it will cause no harm at your age. ...Read more

There's a small lump in my eyelid but I think it's not on my eyeball, for almost a month now, though it doesn't hurt should I worry and have it check?

There's a small lump in my eyelid but I think it's not on my eyeball, for almost a month now, though it doesn't hurt should I worry and have it check?

Don't worry: This almost certainly a chalazion. This is caused by a blockage in one of the little oil glands in the eyelid. Applying hot compresses to the eyelid will help speed the resolution. If it is very large an ophthalmologist can incise it to scoop out the impacted oil. ...Read more

Chalazion keeps popping and growing back. Now looks like a part has broke off and formed a small lump higher up in eyelid near the socket crease. Help?

Several events: A chalazion is the end product of an inflammation of the lid termed a stye. If the body does not conquer it completly it can wall it off making a cyst called a chalazion. There are many lid glands each of which can do this so its probably not a part break off but a new event. You are in a phase of formation of these and should get the advice of an ophthalmologist the treat and prevent them. ...Read more

Often have small red lump on the inside of my top eyelid at the inner corner. If I've been crying or had an allergy attack it gets painful & scratchy.

See eye doctor: If you have problem with scratching at the eyes, you need to consult an eye doctor since it may damage your cornea if gone untreated. If you wear contact lenses, it may be associated with a condition known as giant papillary conjunctivitis which requires serious attention. If you do wear contact lenses, try to do without them until you get to an eye doctor. ...Read more

I have recently discovered a small round spot or lump on the eyelid of my right hand eye, it sometimes hurts and has just ever so slightly blurred the vision of my right eye. What could this be?

Lump in lid: Most likely this is a "chalazion". A cyst-like formation resulting from a specialized oil producing gland that has become blocked. It often needs to be excised surgically, but in the early stages may respond and resolve with wam compresses and antibiotic/steroid drops or ointments. Some ophthalmologists may prefer to inject the "lump" with a steroid injection with generally good response. ...Read more

Chalazion: A chalazion is the encysted remains of your lids battle with a stye. They are benign and will not cause a problem unless it is big enough that you are upset by the appearance.

I'm 16 and I have a small lump on my hard palate hardly seen by eye but I can feel it, also after 4 days I have some swallowing problems.

Get checked out BUT: Not unusual to find hard little bumps on the hard palate....They are usually benign, have been there for years, even since birth, and are benign.....However, since I can't see them....And apparently, neither can you....Would be best to have a doctor or dentist take a look see just to be sure....Especially if you smoke cigarettes, chew tobacco, and things like that....Good luck. ...Read more

I have a small lump on the outside of my eye kind of near the bridge of my nose but by the eye and its hard it hurts to touch it or close my eyes?

Sty?: It may be a sty; which will usually respond to warm compresses. Best way is to cook a potato or egg, wrap a moist cloth around it, and hold it to that part of the eyelid for 15 min three times a day. If this doesn't help please see your doctor (who may send you to an ophthalmologist). ...Read more

I have a small lump on/near my temple. It is tender to the touch at the site of the lump, the top L side of my head and my left eye is a bit blurry.?

Temporal arteritis?: A painful inflammation of the temporal artery (in the temple) can indicate giant cell arteritis (GCA), an inflammation of the arterial walls. The danger lies in the possible development of a central retinal artery occlusion or arteritic ischemic optic neuropathy, which are vision threatening. A prompt diagnosis by a neuro-ophthalmologist can prevent permanent vision loss, and should be done ASAP! ...Read more

I have a small lump in my brain. I get it MRI every couple months. It hasn't changed dr says its fine. I have been to a eye dr I am still experencing vision problems and nose bleeds

I have a small lump in my brain. I get it MRI every couple months. It hasn't changed dr says its fine. I have been to a eye dr I am still experencing vision problems and nose bleeds

A: A mass inside the brain or the skull can be monitored by MRI to look for changes that could cause problems. Symptoms depend on where the mass is. Vision problems could be caused by mass effect on the optic nerves (the nerves that see), the nerves that help move the eyes, or parts of the brain involved in vision. Nosebleeds would be an uncommon symptom of a mass inside the brain or skull.

Even if nosebleeds and vision problems are not related to a mass inside the brain or skull, they are important problems and should be brought to the attention of a doctor. ...Read more

2 weeks ago I developed a small hard lump (about. 3 inch) on my face under my eye, where my glasses sit. What could it be, and should I be worried?

Cyst or benign tumor: It could be an epidermal cyst developing from a plugged oil gland, or any one of several benign skin tumors. These are usually not worrisome, but the only way to know for sure is to have a dermatologist look at it directly, and possibly remove it. Don't squeeze it, that will only make it worse. ...Read more
