Tumor on eyelid?

Hey everyone :)
So I was wondering how many of you have had a tumor on your eyelid, not the upper lash line part, but below it where your eye lashes grow. I have a small skin colored, maybe even lighter, bump there. I am wondering if a doctor would remove a tumor there if it got big enough because if it is a tumor and decides to grow, it would be problematic.
I am hoping its just a little infection from wearing too much makeup and not washing it off properly but since I am going to be seeing Dr. Weinberg (hopefully) soon, I want to look into now. :)

I have a really small one in almost the same area. I am wondering the same thing. Let me know what you find out. Mine is in the inner corner on the inner edge of my eye where the lashes just start. It itches all the time and drives me bonkers.

I have had meny tumors removed off my eyes lids both upper and lower. the first few times removed the regular way with a knife and the last 2 times Dr removed or made smaller the one on my left upper lid I think with ED. My eye surgon that has removed them told me he couldnt remove the entire tumor on my left upper lid cause i wouldnt have an eye lid left. but Dr Melmed was able to remove more. Im hoping its at least alot smaller there is still a scab and a little swollen so I will see. But if it is very small I guessing Dr Weinburg would be able to remove it if he has removed them off the eye lid before.
