Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to Health care magic.

I am Dr. Dadapeer K, an ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye.

It seems from the history that you are having a small bump under the eyelid. This is usually because of involvement of glands of eyelids.
If you are having pain and redness, it indicate inflammatory swelling like hordeolum.
If it is painless slowly growing it can be a chalazion.
Since you also have a lymphoma lid tumors though rare need to be ruled out.
Hence I need few details to answer more accurately,
Duration of the bump
Associated symptoms like pain, redness...
If possible do send a photo of the affected eye.

However a small bump is most probably not serious but requires evaluation and confirmation of diagnosis.

Hope the information is helpful to you.

Thank you

Hi, I have a big bump(don't know if it's a pimple or boil on my eyebrow) with swelling that goes down around the eye too. There is some pain and itching too. Very uncomfortable. The swelling is what concerns me. This started about 48 hours ago, and has just gotten worse.

my husband has had a swollen eye for two days now, not his eye lid and his eye is not blood shot nor is it a sty or pink eye. The swelling has spread a bit to the top of his cheek bone and of course he doesn t think he should go to the hospital anything we can do at home to help?

I went to the doctor on Thursday, it's now Saturday. I was told I had an infected hair and probably a staph infection from it. I was given Bactrim and Mupirocin. My eye is almost swollen shut, I can't sleep from the throbbing pain, it's hurting so bad my too teeth hurt. The swelling is worse and a rash spread across my face. Hot compresses are not working, ibuprofen is only relieving the pain for an hour at a time. Please help!
