Chalazion: A chalazion is a small bump in the eyelid caused by a blockage of the inner eyelid oil gland. It is caused by a blocked duct in one of the meibomian glands. These glands are located in the eyelid (oil gland) directly behind the eyelashes that produce a thin, oily fluid that lubricates the eye. If it bothers you, and ophthalmologist can remove it with surgery. ...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?

My cat had roundworms. Now I have a lump on my eyelid like a stye but it looks like there is a thin wiggly line coming from it. Could it be roundworm?

My cat had roundworms. Now I have a lump on my eyelid like a stye but it looks like there is a thin wiggly line coming from it. Could it be roundworm?

Doubtfully: I recommend performing hot compresses 3-4 times per day for 10' each, followed by gentle eyelid massage over the bump. 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
