I have reviewed your picture and it appears to be a small inclusion cyst. this is a BENIGN cyst which can grow in this location, usually, it is slowly growing and will take some time to increase its size. It is a harmless cyst and would not cause major issues at all or even affect your vision. Now, unfortunately, this will need to be removed via small surgical procedure under local anesthesia, it takes a few minutes to get it removed. Once it is removed you will need to put some antibiotic eye drops in your eye for a week or so.

An inclusion cyst is filled with debris, skin cells and other materials and that is why it looks like a pimple under the light.

Now the second possibility here is that of a stye which is a small infection of one of the glands present in this region. It may cause swelling of the eyelid. In this case, simple home measures are helpful and result in resolution of the problem within a week or so. This would be treated with simple warm compresses over the eye for 10-15 mins at a time up to 3-4 times a day. I would suggest that you do start with the warm compresses and in the meantime schedule an appointment with your doctor for further management including removal.

Do you have any more questions?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
