Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
What does the ophthalmologist think about the growth?
I am concerned about the cysts or whatever it is called looks like a bump in her eye
do you happen to have a picture?
but I have taken her to an eye doctor
four months back
she told us to come back
and see its gotten any bigger
My husband says it looks like its a little bigger
where exactly is it located?
So I am concerned
in the sclera
the white part of her eye
it does not bother her though
lower part of her left eye
not on the eyelid
Cysts certainly can grow. The biggest worry is if it is benign or malignant. Most cysts are not worrisome. It depends what the cyst is filled with. If it is filled with clear fluid, then growth is variable, sometimes getting much larger suddenly. Sometimes these cysts cant be filled with lipid. In this case, growth is slower.
can it be cancereous
possible, for in young kids that is very unlikely.
So what are my options
it does look like aclear fluid inside
watch it for now is be the best.
If it becomes bothersome, then it would need excision.
but will it reolve on its own
in young kids, this has to be done in the OR with general anesthesia.
onlt if its bothersome
