Hard white spots on eyelid. Cancer?

Hello Doctor, I have two small rock hard white spots on my eye lid. Like milk spots but very hard. How can I get rid of them, are they dangerous and is squeezing them harmful? I m sure they are nothing to worry about. it s just that my fathers girlfriend had a similar lump on her lower lid, where you would ear eye liner and it bled once, she had it removed and it turned out to be cancerous! I d appreciate your feedback. Thank you, Claudia

Hello, welcome to HCM,
Firstly, to reach a definite diagnosis, you need to consult an ophthalmologist for clnical examination.
But look, whatever it is, you have to remove it. Because, it is not possible to tell any lesion as benign or malignant on just macroscopical examination.
For, this, the tissue after removal must be sent for histological examination. Only this method can definitely tell you what it is.
