My names Becky and I'm 18.
I noticed that I have a bump on my eyelid somewhat. Its not close to the eye, like a sty, im positive its not a sty.
Its located on the bottom right, of my left eye (if that makes sense) but you cannot see it unless you pull down the eyelid. Even then you can't see the lump, its just red above the lump underneath that skin.
If you put your finger over it, you can feel it, and kinda move it, and it puts pressure on my eye and kindof on the left side of my nose, and its irratating.
Its about a half a cm big it feels in diameter. I felt it before but i left it alone, and now it seemed to grow bigger. I put warm compresses on it and nothing happens.
Could you please tell me what it is?

My Mother in law has something similiar and has gone to the doctors for it. Hers was a foreign body that had weakened the outer coating of the eye and there is nothing they can do for it now short of a surgery that may not work. I'm not saying this is the case with you since you really need to see a doctor to have it examined properly.
