Hi all,

This lump appeared yesterday morning, when i move it with my finger it appears to be attatched to a thin clear film. However, after a few hours it gradually decreases in size before dissapearing - only to reappear when i woke up again today. I had a similar thing a few weeks ago, in the same place however it was also gone within a few hours and did not reappear until yesterday.

I have attatched a photo below. Any ideas?

p.s. I am a contact lens wearer.

  • I also get the lumps. Mine are on the inside(nose side) of my eye and are directly next to the colored part only on the white part. They are on both sides and i started getting them when I was on Chemo for Hepititis-C. They dont seem to bother me and last time I was at the Eye doc,he said some people get them and didnt seem too concerned about them. Dont know if it helped you or not but just knowing someone else has them might be a comfort???

  • I've spoken to the optician about it last week, turns out it is just a pinguecula, quite common and completely benign and harmless. I also found out that I meet the requirements for a class 1 pilot medical (professional) after thinking I didn't for ages so I'm too happy to care about the pinguecula now lol

  • Hello buttinski, I know its been a few years scents you posted last. I am on hep-c trip treatment and have bump on right eye (on nose side) but my bump touch's pupil. Did your bumps come and go, or where they there the whole treatment? Also are you still on treatment, if no, did they heal after treatment.. Hope this message gets to you. Any response will be greatly appreciated. -Davis85
