Hi!
A yellowish white growth on the white portion of the eye and not overlapping the cornea can be a Pinguecula. This is a non cancerous growth and usually does not cause any problem. This usually happens due to low humidity, dust or chemical exposure etc. Usually eye melanoma develops underneath the eye lids. Hence, this is less likely to be an eye melanoma. Please however, show this to an eye specialist. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
