What causes eyelid lumps and swellings to appear? Are they a genetic condition or are caused by other factors?
The main causes of eyelid lumps and swellings, that are usually found at the base of the eyelashes are obstructions of the oil glands, meaning an oil, dirt, or debris accumulation that occurs due to poor hygiene (wearing dirty contacts, using expired make-up, leaving make-up on overnight, etc.) and are even more common in people who rub their eyes frequently. Eyelid lumps are also caused by Staphylococcal bacteria, by those that are not bacterial in nature, much like a stye, or by the development of a cancerous cell. The private eye specialists at Renew Skin & Health Clinic say that most of the lumps and swellings go away by themselves, or by applying warm compresses and using antibiotic ointments, but the ones that don't might require removal surgery.
