Hi here is my question... I have a (probably) 2 or 3 cm in length clear, but skin colored, almost looks like a blister, with liquid, and something hard in it, in the outside (left) corner of my eye, where the top and bottom corner meet. I have had this for at least 6 yrs. and its getting bigger. It is making me nervous! what is it??? its not a hang me please, several people have inquired, and showed concern.

Dear An,

There is no reason to live with such a lesion! I would consult your dermatologist for removal. In most cases, troubling lesions by the eye are covered by insurance as they can obstruct vision as they grow.

I hope that helps
