Chalazion (Lump in Eyelid)

Comment from: brenda, 19-24 Female (Caregiver) Published: July 31

I had this thing called chalazion on my eyelid for almost 5 months now. It was not painful at all, and now after all these months when it has decreased, I woke up but with some pain in the lid. One more day and on waking up it had grown bigger in size with a lot of pain. I don't know whether it will ever go away. I just want to get rid of it without a surgery because it is creeping me out all the time.
