lump below eye

Hi there,

My father has small lump under his eye for 2 months. It is not painful but sometimes it brings pain when the skin got irritation and turns red. Do you have any idea what it is?
thank you

Re: lump below eye

There are lots of possibilities but he really needs to have it checked by a doctor. It could be a small cyst or a fatty lipoma or an infected hair follicle, etc. However, it could also be a basal cell carcinoma. All of these can be removed (if necessary) and without pain so do tell him to have it checked. He should certainly not try to squeeze it.
