I have developed a very hard lump on my eye socket bone

Customer Question
I have developed a...

I have developed a very hard lump on my eye socket bone almost to the outside corner of my eye. Do you have any idea what this is?

Doctor's Assistant: When was the last time you had your eyes checked? In general, how has your vision been lately?

I went to my eye doctor last week and he ordered a CT of my orbital and a bone density scan, results came back good. He also did an eye exam. I go back to see him in 2 days to have my eyes dilated.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nothing

Is it only on one side? And when you touch it how large does it feel?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
It's on one side about 1.5cm
Eye Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 11 months ago

The size is fairly small. It is unlikely to be anything serious since lymph nodes wouldn't be present there. If it's adherent to the bone then it would be incredibly painful. If it's what we call "embossing" then that's just an overgrowth of bony and is painless and benign.

With the CT normal I suspect it's the latter.

Has it grown much in size recently or stayed the same?

It seems like it as grown a small amount. It is very noticeable...
Eye Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 11 months ago

Do you have a picture that I can view?

If it isn't growing rapidly that's a good sign.

If it's a cosmetic problem you can have an ophthalmologist who specializes in cosmetic work shave the bone done. During that process they would even take a biopsy.

And ENT will do this as well.

I have been going to an ophthalmologist and going back to him tomorrow. I do have constant migraines.
Eye Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 11 months ago

I don't believe the migraines would be from this. Migraines are often due to vessel spasms in the head and sometimes associated with muscle spasms in the face or neck.

It's great that you have follow up with your ophtho, they should definitely be able to point you in the right direction.

However, in case you are concerned about something serious, I don't think this is anything of that nature based on my experience with such presentations.
