Answer

Thanks for your Question

This part of the eye is called caruncle and it contains sebaceous glands, hair follicles, sweat glands and accessory lacrimal glands so blockage of any of these glands can cause swelling and cyst, the same of what you have.

I would ignore it for now and just observe it for any pain, discharge, redness or growth in size. In this case it should be examined properly in the eye clinic.

 

 

 

Please ignore the dot in the eye, i am inquiring about the corner of my eye, thank you.
