Can you elaborate on the nodule ( size, description, etc) ? If there was no trauma to this eye, this could be a cyst, a lipoma, sebacious gland, etc. Have this evaluated further by your doctor for proper management . Direct clinical examination is important to reach a diagnosis. At this point ask her to avoid manipulating the area. Treatment will depend on the underlying condition.
