Eyelid Lumps and Bumps
The formation of benign lumps and bumps tends to become more prevalent with age. These lumps can persist for at least six months and may not cause any discomfort to the patient. However, any history of changes in size, color, bleeding, or ulcerations should raise concern for potentially malignant growths.
Here’s how the procedure works:
The surgeon will invert your eyelid and carefully remove the cyst using small instruments.
Eyelid cyst removal is typically performed as a day case procedure, allowing you to return home on the same day.
Ideal candidates for eyelid cyst removal include individuals who experience:
- The presence of a lump or cyst similar to a stye
- Heaviness in the eyelid
- Increased tenderness and swelling of the eyelid
- Excessive tearing
- Any growth that obstructs vision or leads to eyelash loss should be considered potentially malignant.
Please be aware that a trained eyelid specialist should assess and monitor any new or changing lesions.
