Eyelid lumps, bumps and benign cysts

The eyelids, a specialised area of skin, can develop skin tags, moles, cysts and other benign lesions as elsewhere on the body. Styes and meibomian cysts (chalazion) are common inflammations of the sebaceous glands of the eyelids, the majority of which will resolve spontaneously in time. Cysts that are particularly symptomatic or which do not resolve sufficiently quickly can be easily incised and drained by an oculoplastic surgeon.
