Permanent Sty

A lump on the eyelid happens to be a sty and it is caused due to a blocked sebaceous gland. Mostly it goes away with time. And it is a cause of irritation when it persists longer.

However, if the sty keeps reappearing, or persists without healing it might be a case of sebaceous gland carcinoma and it is advisable to visit the doctor at the earliest.

Loss Of Eyebrows
