It looks like chalazion.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thank you for the follow up question.

I reviewed the photo attached with the question.
The photo shows cystic swelling of the upper eyelid.
The most common cause for this is swelling of meibomian gland called as chalazion.

The treatment is by simple incision and curettage.

However the diagnosis needs to be confirmed by examination.

Hence I advice you to consult your ophthalmologist for opinion.


Hope this answers your question.
