Hey Amanda,

Isn't that a weird and uncomfortable feeling!? I've never had a "sty" until about 3 or 4 weeks ago, got rid of it with some oil. Then yesterday got another one of the darn things - back to the oil again. I hope you get rid of it quickly - it's so annoying (mine hurts, but I have a low pain tolerance). Get better soon :-P

Hi Amanda and Saganco and welcome to HealingWell! tongue
 
Amanda, based on what you mentioned, I'm not sure if I understood exactly where this lump/bump is?  Attached on your eye itself, or to the eyelid?  Of course, you know I'm not a Dr., but I've got a son that just went through a bunch of testing due to a lump on the eye itself and that's something completely different than a stye.  Please write me back here, so I can understand better and then I will answer you to the best of my ability...though, of course, you know nothing with the eye is anything we should fool around with-so if it is continuing to bother you, please get this checked by your physician!
 
Saganco, sorry you had a problem with a stye, from what I've understood those can be very uncomfortable!
 
Best Wishes to both of you! Teri tongue

Hi and welcome to Healingwell :) This lump can be a few things, maybe you got a foreign matter in it....does it hurt? The integrity of the eye in that section is compromised (my MIL has this) or it can something totally off the wall. The only way to be sure is to see the opthalmologist. Any abnormal lumps really should be checked out my a doctor.

Good luck!

MIL = Mother in law......she has a like a bump on the white of her eye, probably due to some foreign matter that compromised the outer covering. The doctor said there was nothing they could do for it except when it gets irritated use steroid eye drops.

holy crap!! Ive read about that steroids eye drops, that doesnt sound good in the long run. Well im just gonna wait a week and if it doesnt go away see a doctor. I am hoping that it is nothing related to cancer, or brain cancer, or lime disease reflected in my eye. Its not visible because its not in a spot where i could see it. I hear you can tell a lot about a person health just by their hair, nails and eye's. I dont know, but I am healthy. I stay in shape and take vitamins, crazy $53 dollar vitamins to potent for pregnant ladies.

Hi
Just wanted to tell you not to wait a week to see a Doctor. You will only have one pair of eyes.
My mother was an Optomitrist, and one day she came home from the office so depressed. One of her patients that day had presented with completely cloudy lens on both eyes. He had been bundlying wheat on his farm and the wind had blown  particles into his eyes. He had called two doctors and they tried to make appointments for later that month. In the meantime his eyes had become scratched. Anything wrong with your eye go to the emergency room.

Hello
I am new to this forum and came across it trying to find info on the same type of bump on my eyeball under the top part of my eyelid and saw that one of you seem to be describing the same exact thing. My story is: I have been having re-occuring stys and inflamations to my eye for a couple of months, went to the doc, said they were infections in my eyelid. However, they have since gone away but my eye still felt irritated and sometimes would sting or itch. Now I have noticed this bump. It is on my eyeball under the top eyelid about half way. It is about the size of be-be. I also seem to be having trouble focusing that one eye and becomeing concerned that something else is going on. Did the person with the very similar condition find out from the eye doctor what it was?

Hey, Royaljet
If it's starting to effect your vision, go see a eye doctor right away. Don't any of you mess with your eyes go to a specialist an Ophthalmologist as soon as you can. Even a simple red eye infection can get pretty bad.
Take care y'all and God Bless

Yes, I went to the doctor and found out it was just ANOTHER stye, tHEY ARE NOT ALWAYS easy to see!!! I am a very logical and well rounded person and i swore up and down that bump was on the white of my eye, but it was not visible due to its location. Doctor flipped my eye lid and examined it, said it was a stye. She did nothing extraordinary but say, "put warm compresses on it 2-3 a day, and about 15 mins. each time, if after a week and a half it doesnt go down at alll, u can have it checked out again and we will surgically remove it".


Summarization: It was actually a stye that I mistook as a bump on the white of my eye. Doctor did not do anything usual but realive my worries.

Good to hear you went for treatment somuchclass, at least doctors can put our minds at ease. I had a lump on my eye earlier this year and I developed a high fever with it that the Doctor had to do surgery on it. However, it took three surgeries for the doctor to get it all out. It was very painful and it did not respond to warm compresses. I truly hope yours will..
Good luck and keep us posted
Hugs

dear teri16 and anyone who can help

my husband has a lump on each of his eyes in the same place and on the white area of his eye towards the nose.  It is actually on his eye ball and not on the lids.  The lumps are translucent and small, he doesn't have any discomfort from them and nothing is coming out of the lumps, but since I mentioned to him he had 2 lumps on his eyeball he says they are sore now!!!! honestly, he didn't even know they were there until I told him.

anyway, you mentioned that your son had a lump on his eye and had some tests, did he go to his doctor or optition?  was the lump translucent and small?

I think I am more worried that my husband!

if anyone has any advice or might know what the condition is called I would be really grateful

thank you

Hi and welcome :) Has your husband gone to the doctor for this yet? If not, then I recommend he go see one to put his mind (and yours!) at ease. I'm sure it's nothing serious. Does he work? What kind of work does he do?

Styes are caused by staphylococcal bacteria. This bacterium is often found in the nose, and it's easily transferred to the eye by rubbing first your nose, then your eye.

The best bet would be to not rub your eye or even touch your eye without a tissue. And yes they do hurt! I used to get them on occasion too and what a nuisance!

I am a 28yo male - I developed a rather large lump on my left eyeball which was accompanied by slight pain. I noticed the lump while putting in my contact lenses and immediately went to an ophthalmologist for diagnosis. He gave me an exam and told me that I had a condition called nodular epislceritis. Basically, this means that I have a lump on the outer part of my eyeball. After talking to my doctor and doing some research, I found that this condition is idiopathic (has no underlying disorder that causes it) in 70% of the cases. The other 30% are often caused by a laundry list of disorders including lupus, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, syphilis, HIV, and cancers.

My doctor put me on prednisone drops which is the typical first step with nodular episcleritis. The drug acts to reduce swelling and dissipate the lump. Typical response time is around 2 weeks. After this period of time, I went back for a follow-up where my doctor expressed dismay at the fact that the nodule on my eye had not reduced measurably and that the redness around it had actually grown. At this point, he ordered a CT scan to search for a foreign body such as a piece of a contact lens, a nidus of infection, or other nefarious element. After this test came back clean, he ordered a chest X-ray and a full blood workup.

Needless to day, was a little nervous at this point and was worried that I had some type of cancer. He called me a few days after these tests and told me that all came back normal and that I should add another, non-steroidal drop (Xibrom) to my daily regimen and that he would like to see me in a couple of weeks. At the tail end of the call, he asked me if the swelling had gone down. I told him that it had and that while it was visibly less swollen, that I had developed noticibly more redness and that the area that was once the lump had almost taken on a translucent appearance. He told me that this was a good sign and that he was happy with the report. He ended by telling me that he was comfortable with his diagnosis of nodular episcleritis and that it should be self-limiting. The only catch was that I had the worst case he had ever seen!!

To keep a long story short (too late), the lump on my eye was BIG - I mean, really, really, unnaturally and freakishly huge. I did not experience much discomfort but was alarmed that I was dying from some type of disease. I am now at week 7 of this ordeal and the lump is nearly gone with still a fair amount of "pissed off" veins that are red and inflamed around the area that was raised. My doctor assures me that this is the natural result of the healing process and that the condition will be gone within 3-4 weeks. During this time, I should continue to use the two eye drops daily.

This may not be the condition that you or others with your symptoms are experiencing, but it is nonetheless, an important one to be aware of. It is on the whole self-healing and can range from mild to the ridiculously disgusting -- i.e. my eye. I would encourage you to do some research on it, ask your doctor if it is a possibility, and take a deep breathe while reassuring yourself that it is not something that will end your life. That being said, my first piece of advice is - GO SEE YOUR DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY if you discover any type of lump on your eye or other part of your body. As people have been saying, you only have one pair of eyes - this is true, but you only have one body that is attached to these eyes and you have to make sure that it is taken care of.

Hope this long story helps...

Nick

Thank you Nick for sharing your story! :) I'm glad that you found the cause of your lump. You are so totally right when you say that we have only one pair of eyes and I couldn't agree more!

hey guys i also have some story to tell, i can really relate to everyone of u and im relieve that im not the only one hu have multipe styes on my eyes. my story goes like this. a sty first grew in my right upper eyelid and i usually ignore it coz i got occasional stys before and just ignore, it comes off after a day or two anyway, but i didn't realize that this sty is diffrent, it didn't come off, it swell, and after a few days the swelling comes off ,but the lump is still there, and then grows another one beside it, and then a few days later, a lup on my lower eyelid develops and by this i see an opthalmologist, i took antibiotics but nothing happen, it's resistant so my optha suggest that i undergo surgery, i have a total of 5 lumps on my eyes, 4 of them is small but the one on my lower eyelid is really big, it's like a very big eyebag,it's horrible. so after the surgery, my optha told me to do hot compress 4 times a day. well, i can say that it is improving ryt now, it decreased in size,but it still not that proportion with my other eye so im still worried so went bak to my optha and he told me that all that was left to my eyes are capsules and all i have to do is continue with the hot compress, but still it's not coming off, there are still capsules in it. that's why so that pipol wont recognizw it, i always smile so that it will be proportion with my other eye, it will luk just like eyebags,it gets so tiring really, but for those pipol hu know that i have this sty always asked me y it isn't coming off after the surgery, i really dont know wat to tell them. i gets so embarassing. it's been two months after the surgery, and still my lower eyelid isn't normal yet. im not used to this. people used to tell me that im so pretty, but now i think they changed their minds for those hu know my condition. i really think im cursed. im really depressed.. this is like the worst year ever...

Usually with a stye you use warm moist compresses to relieve the swelling and to break it open. And they have otc creams that you can buy at your local pharmacy to help alleviate the pain. But it's best to be seen by a doctor just in case it is not a stye. I've had them in the past too and they are horrible and painful!

Hi. my daughter has a similar lump on her eye-actually raised area with two bumps. We noticed it over a year ago when she complained her eye hurt. She has been to her pediatrician, opthamologist, and even an occulofacial specialist.  They tried every kind of eyedrop, tested her vision, and monitered the lump for a couple months.  They determined that it was not affecting her sight or changing in size and told us that if it continued to bother her they could do sugery(which is very scary to me), otherwise not to worry about it.  She complains that it hurts occaisionally, usually for about a week, then she won't mention it for a month or so.  I can't find any information on what this could be, the doctors didn't seem to know either.  I don't want her to be uncomfortable, but I want to know what is causing it and if there are any other options before considering surgery.
