What Are Eyelid Lumps and Bumps?

First, the good news is that eyelid lumps and bumps are almost always easily treated. These growths typically occur gradually, and can be treated as soon as you start to notice them. The most common types of eyelid lumps are styes (also called chalazion).
Styes tend to form on the edge of an eyelid and can appear on either the upper or lower lid. At first, they may look like a small pimple, but can continue to grow if the inflammation spreads. In many cases, your stye can go away on its own. But if it persists, you may need treatment to avoid the symptoms that come along with a stye. This type of growth tends to occur in the eyelid’s oil gland.
In rarer cases, eyelid skin cancer may appear as a bump as well. This is why we recommend visiting an eyelid specialist for any bumps, so you can get an accurate diagnosis and the right treatment. Eyelid skin cancer is also easily treatable when caught early on.

How Can I Treat Eyelid Lumps and Bumps?

The treatment we provide for your eyelid lumps depends on the type, cause, and severity of the bump. Most of the time, treatments are light and comfortable, allowing you to restore your eyelids with ease.

Antibiotics

We may prescribe antibiotics in cases when a lump has become infected.

Steroid Injections

This is ideal for when swelling is beginning to affect vision or your appearance significantly.

Surgical Options

Surgical options for treating styes are usually very light and minor. They typically focus on draining the lump so that it shrinks and then goes away on its own.

Should I Get Treatment?

While styes often go away on their own, it can often be a good idea to receive treatment. First, it is important to visit an eyelid specialist to learn what type of eyelid lump you have. Trying to treat eyelid bumps at home without a professional’s advice can often lead to making the situation worse. As soon as you notice your eyelid lump, we recommend scheduling an appointment with Dr. Sohrab. She can fully examine your eyelids and determine the best way to get them back to looking their best.

Eyelid Treatment Recovery and Results

For most treatments, there is no downtime when taking care of your eyelid lumps or bumps. However, if we perform minor surgery, some patients prefer to take a day or two off work to let their eyelids recover. However, this is usually up to personal preference.
