Lump on eyelid, redness, swelling, soreness. Is it chalazion?

I've had a lump on my right eyelid since the end of July. It started off with redness, swelling, soreness and when I woke up in the morning my eye was crusted up. I applied warm compress which alleviated the swelling and sorenss; however, the lump is still there and it's no longer tender. It's now October, does it sound like I have a Chalazion? And if so, do you think I need to have it surgical removed now because of the length of time I've had the lump on my eyelid?

Hello,
It seems from the history that you probably had internal hordeolum after treatment, now it has become chalazion.
The main treatment for chalazion is either intralesional injection of long acting steroid or by minor surgery like incision and curettage. Please do consult your eye doctor for treatment.
Thank you
