Eye Bump

I woke up with a small bump beside my left eye. It's located at the outside corner and is partly on the eyelid. I'm a little worried. There's a small pain blinking and touching it. I have no idea what it could be. What should I do?

You might have a sty or chalazion.  These involve blockage of various lid glands.  You could try warm compresses, which help with resolution.  If the bump does not resolve, see an ophthalmologist.
