Brief Answer:
Small bump is not serious but requires evaluation.

Detailed Answer:
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
