My 20 month old son has had a small pimple like bump on his lower eyelid. He's had it for about three months now. I've had several doctors look at it but they all say as long as it doesnt bother him, leave it alone. My friend said it may be a tumor which scared me to death. I was wondering if anyone else had a similar experience.

If this bump has not changed in size or is not itchy or inflamed then this is not a tumour and your friend should be ashamed of herself for worrying you. If it does not bother your son then leave it alone, if it suddenly starts to grow or changes in appearance then go back to the doctors but until then leave well alone.

I've had a bump like that on my eyelid. I never did anything about it. It went away on it's own. I never had a doc lookat it either. I just figured as long as it didn't bother me or get bigger I wouldn't worry about it. If it were a tumor then thedocs would be more worried about it. Also, tumors grow so it would be getting bigger.
