Customer Question
I have a hard...

I have a hard bump right under my eye on the bone and it’s getting bigger. I’m not sure if I should worry about it or if it’s something that will eventually go away.

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

I had an eye examination about a few months ago but my vision is not out of the norm. I noticed the bump about 2 weeks ago.

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

No nothing out of the ordinary for history.

You can’t really tell by looking at my eye it’s something that I can feel. But my eye has been sore as well.
Eye Doctor: Dr. Chip, Doctor (non-eye specialty) replied 6 months ago

How large is the bump?

Ask Your Own Eye Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
It’s about the size of a small pea.
Eye Doctor: Dr. Chip, Doctor (non-eye specialty) replied 6 months ago

Well I certainly don't see anything worrisome in the photo

This is likely a completely benign cyst from a sebaceous gland

Not cancer and not harmful

It might go away on it's own in time but if it's bothersome it can easily be removed under local anesthesia

Please let me know if you need any more information
