    I have no idea but really wishing you all my best :) The last thing any of us need so crossing fingers for you mate

    Might be a cyst or perhaps something else?

    Hello, please take some reassurance from my experience.About 20 years ago I had a group of hard lumps on (the sclera )the front of my eye, following lots of eye examinations and CT scans and so on they took biopsies and found they were just benign lumps.

    The lumps were sort of off white and affected my vision.The only conclusion was that a general improvement in my diabetic control would be a good idea but they just cut the lumps off. No problems since.Rx

    These types of cysts are quite common. They usually go on their own too. I can understand how worried you must have been

    Hi, a while ago I had a lump just on my eyelid. It was hard and I went to my GP. He referred me to a specialist, I was examined and he explained that your eyes secrete oil. This was an oil ball that would disperse on its own. I know your may not be this but it's better to get it sorted x
