Hi! A few months ago when I was rubing my eyes I noticed a couple of small lumps would appear from behind my eyes. I'm concerned it's Cancer.

It's not cancer.: What you describe is not a symptom of cancer. It sounds like you are causing some inflammation when you rub your eyes. Can you go to an eye doctor? And try not to worry about cancer; it's actually very rare in someone your age (20)! ...Read more

Diminished vision: Sarcoidosis is a slow inflammatory condition that features growths called granulomata. These can appear on lacrimal glands and create dry eyes. These can appear inside the eye orbit or on the optic nerve. These can cause nerve irritations and cause a paralysis of eye movements. If on the optic nerve, loss of vision may result. Floaters can result from inflammatory cells. ...Read more

I work on building site and get dust in me eyes all day and for last through years I get stye like lumps at end of my eye kids will it be the dust.

Ocular irritation: The type of climate you work in does predispose you to ocular irritation. Usually when something gets into the eye, like dust, your reaction is to rub the eyes which can cause irritation, contamination, damage to the delicate oil gland orifices or channels that may cause styes. Use protective eyewear to help reduce the exposure. Use lubrication eye drops or eye rinses if something gets in your eye. ...Read more

Lymph glands: Generalized enlargement of lymph nodes are seen in infectious mononucleosis, malignant blood dyscrasias and other infections. I'm not sure that they would be found on the rib cage itself or on the shin bone. I recommend an evaluation by a hematologist or an infectious disease specialist.

Tear gland: It sounds like the location of your lacrimal glands (tear glands). These are soft, yellowish glands in the upper, outer areas of both eyes underneath your lids. They can be various sizes and shapes, but typically are mobile, "squishy", and not tender. If painful or tender this could be infected tear glands or possibly chalazia (styes). ...Read more

All of these require intervention as soon as possible to prevent more serious consequences. ...Read more
