Lesions (bumps) on the skin surrounding the eyelids are common. They may be caused by sun exposure or heredity. Lesions can be benign, precancerous or cancerous. The most common form of cancer on or around the eyelids is called basal cell carcinoma.

 

Chalazion

A chalazion is an enlargement of an oil gland deep in the eyelid caused by an obstruction of the gland's opening.

At first, a chalazion looks and feels like a stye: swollen eyelid, mild pain, and irritation. However, these symptoms disappear after 1 or 2 days, leaving a round, painless swelling in the eyelid that grows slowly for the first week. Occasionally, the swelling continues to grow and may press on the eyeball and cause slight blurring. A red or gray area may develop on the underside of the eyelid.

Most chalazions disappear without treatment within 2 to 8 weeks. If hot compresses are applied several times a day, chalazions may disappear sooner. If they remain after this time or if they cause vision changes, a doctor can drain them or inject a corticosteroid. Antibiotics are usually not an effective means of treatment.

If you think you may have a chalazion, you should schedule an appointment so that Dr. Abrams may confirm diagnosis and treatment.
