In brief: Evaluation

Presumably you saw an optometrist who advised a biopsy of a fleshy mass located in the lacrimal gland or by it.
The referral to an ophthalmologist would be the next step, who will be able to advise you on the differential diagnosis of this mass. Sometimes other testing is necessary before considering a biopsy (blood tests, imaging). A tissue biopsy may be advised when definitive treatment required
