Warm compresses: Warm compresses, or surgical incision and drainage, or steroid have been the only effective treatments demonstrated get rid of a stye. A stye is due to the orifice of an oil gland (mebomian gland) in the eyelid margin becoming inflamed, and not an infection. ...Read more

Probably chalazion: You might have had a stye in the lid (sometimes these occur without any significant symptoms) and in the battle of your body to get rid of it, the stye was surrouded by a cystic structure which quiets down the lid. This is called a chalazion. There is no danger to this but it can be removed if it bothers you in your ophthalmologists' office. ...Read more

Stye or fatty tumor: You did not specify where. If it is at the edge of the upper or lower eyelid, it's probably a stye. If it is soft and overlying the eyebrow, it is probably a fatty tumor, which is harmless. To know for sure, you should see your doctor. ...Read more

What do you recommend if I have a lump behind the bottom right eyelid?

What do you recommend if I have a lump behind the bottom right eyelid?

Stye or chalazion: A lump in the eyelid is caused by an infection either in the eyelid skin (stye) or one of the meibomian glands inside the eyelid (chalazion). A stye will tend to resolve in several days, but a chalazion will usually persist. Try using warm compresses to help reduce the size of the lump and the inflammation associated with it. ...Read more

Is it possible to get a chalazion deep in the lower eyelid I have like a fixed ball lump deep in my lower lid it's slightly painful when pressed.?

Yes: Usually hot/warm compresses on the chalazion help, rather than squeezing it directly. I would see an eye doc (referred by your family doc) this week. Don't touch it directly anymore and just use compresses until you see the doc. ...Read more
