    How long for chalazion (lump on eyelid) to go away on own?

    I went to see my doctor today and she refused to surgically remove it for me for another 3 weeks. I've had this chalazion for about 4 days now. It is pea-sized, hard, and not painful at all. But I have exams and prom coming up in 2 weeks and I would really like it gone. I'm using hot compresses, antibiotic cream and prescribed eye drops. If it goes away on its own how long might it take?


    Has anyone else had one? How long did it take?

    Thanks!

    (a bit late but for those who search for this topic...)

    In my case it did not go away, it actually went months before i decided to go to the doctor to get it removed through a quick painless operation.

    Aparantly they will go away by themself if treatment (hot compressess etc) is started early enough.

    i had a bout of them coming and going for couple weeks.

    they resolve on their own with little interference, even though i freaked out when saw it!
