I have a small round bump on my eyebrow. What is it?

How long has it been: There? New or all your life? This can determine a better answer. If it's been there all your life, it could be an amelanotic nevus (mole, no pigment or pigmented). If it's recent, it may be just a bump, molluscum, or wart. Hard to say without a picture actually. It's only a theoretical guess until examined by an eye doctor or your PCP in person. SO, this isn't urgent, but good to check out. ...Read more

Probably not: You have received a contusion and these take a little time to heal. If the vision is normal and you do not see double, then you just need a little more time for this bump which is probably a bruised healing point to disappear. You might try using local heat to speed this process. ...Read more
