Milia or whatever the hard white bump under my eye is?

I've had this white bump that has something hard under the skin near the lower eye bone for over 10 years. I used to think it was some kind of scar. Now I'm wondering if it is Milia or something, but there is confusing and contradictory information on what Milia is.

I think it is something that is lanced and the hard thing scooped out, but I'm afraid I'll get a scar.

Has anyone tried anything like Glycolic acid or salicylic acid?

I had been putting Retin A just above there for about a year and it seems to me that the skin over the bump is very thin now.
