Small lump under skin, near eyebrow, swelling, sensitive, painful. Causes and treatment?

i have a 1/2 inch lump growing under my skin near the eyebrow area. when i first noticed it, it was small and i thought it was just a pimple ...that was about 3 months ago, since then it has nearly trippled in size and dosnt show any signs of slowing down. Somtimes the top of my eyelid will swell up and it looks like i got punched in the eye. Its very sensitive and painful. I havnt been to the doctors because i have no health insurence. Can you please tell me what it could possibly be?

Very difficult to predict, it may be Sebaceous cyst with or without secondary infection or dermoid cyst,
better you evaluate with dermatologist.Mean time you can take anti inflammatory medicine.
