I have a hard white bump on the center on my upper eye lid?

Im 19 year old female. I have no prior medical history with skin problems. I have a hard white bump on the center on my upper eye lid that I’ve had for a few months now and it’s starting to worry me. What could it be ? It doesn’t hurt and I feel no eye irritation.

The best to answer this is an opthalmologist who examines this directly.but Whitish, painless bumps on the eyelids can be caused by small collections of a protein under the skin which is often harmless and don’t always require medical treatment. They often go away on their own or with basic home care. However, if an eyelid bump becomes increasingly painful, doesn’t respond to home treatments, or begins to interfere with your vision, you may want to talk to your opthalmologist about ways to manage your symptoms or to look for signs of a more serious problem.

hi
it seems like a simple cyst. such cysts are usually benign and do not cause any harm.
as long as its painless and remains of the same size,you need not worry.
thanks

HI
EVEN THOUGH IT IS PAINLESS,IT MAY CAUSE PRESSURE SYMPTOMS ON THE INNER ASPECT OF EYE.
CONSULT A OPTHALMOLOGIST AND GET IT EXAMINED.

This is a simple lipoma you dermatologist can remove it easly
If it does not bother you then you can ignore it but notice any changes in size to make sure it is not liposarcoma ( cancerous )
By the way steroid injection can shrink it but i do not recommend it in eyelid

Good Luck

hello there
the nodule seems to be a benign one. won’t cause any harm. but you need to consider it getting treated for cosmetic purpose as you are pretty young
