It is common for benign lumps and bumps to form increasingly over time as one ages. The lumps can often be present for at least six months and could potentially cause no irritation to the patient. Any history of change in size, change in color, bleeding, or ulcerations can point to malignant growths.
How Does it Work?
The surgeon will turn your eyelid inside out and then cut the cyst away using tiny instruments. Eyelid cyst removal is usually performed as a day case, meaning you will go home the day of the procedure.
- Prencense of lump or cyst similar to a stye
- Heaviness of the eyelid
- Increased tenderness and swelling of the eyelid
- Increased tearing
- Any growth that interferes with vision or causes a loss of eyelashes should also be considered potentially malignant
Please note that new or changing lesions should be examined and monitored by a trained eyelid specialist.
