    Bump under the eye lid - Suggestions?
    haorcutt posted:
    I've recently noticed a bump under my upper eye-lid, to the top corner (toward the ear, not the nose). It's kind of hard & about the size of a pencil eraser. It doesn't hurt - but I'm wondering if this is something I should have my regular practitioner check out or should I go to my eye doctor? You can see the bump when I close that eye a bit, but it's not noticeable when my eye is open. It just appeared in the last couple of weeks or so.

    Has anyone else experienced anything like this?

    I wouls go to the eye doctor. An Opthomologist.

    Thanks for the suggestion! I'll see if I can get an appointment next week. :) Was hoping it would just go away on its own.
