A lump under the eye should trigger examination of Duke's maxillary teeth arcade for a fractured 4th premolar or 1st molar which is now abscessed and the infection has fistulated through bone to under the eye. There are other causes of lumps, however. Can you upload a photo(s) of this lump to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see that icon) or you can use an external app such as dropbox.com/

I can be more accurate for you if I can see what you're seeing.
