Granuloma
My four year old was diagnose with granuloma this doc said this is also an infected cyst.  She has a liitle flesh like thing growing on the inner part of her left eye lid. The person who took her to the doctor was told that it it grows they will have to do surgery on the eye.

What are the causes?
What are the treatments?

This is probably a pyogenic granuloma--result of an infection.  It may have to be surgically removed.  A steroid injection may help.
