Lacrimal caruncle

7806007?1332816774
Hello,

My Lacrimal caruncle (eyes)  is kind of  large the usual , just wanted to know if surgery is an option to remove or reduce the size. And long is recovery  time of this procedure.

Lacrimal caruncle-The lacrimal caruncle, also called the caruncula lachrymalis, is the small triangle-shaped pink bump located in the corner of the eye. Within this type of caruncle are sweat and oil glands called sudoriferous and sebaceous glands.

Unless there were a tumor or suspecious lesion I doubt anyone will want to touch it and if they did likely it would be deemed cosmetic and all the money would come out of your pocket.
