Small white bumps in corner of the eye

Hi,
Over the last few years i've noticed 2 small bumps growing in the corner of my eye (slightly less than 1mm across I think). The bumps aren't on the white of the eye, but rather on the bottom lid in the corner slightly up from the tear duct. Although they don't cause me any discomfort I can feel them when I rub the corner of my eye, and people sometimes think I have something in the corner of my eye.

Any help on identifying what these are would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks - Sarah

Sarah you will need to see an Eye MD physician-ophthalmologist to get a diagnosis: could be cyst, plugged oil gland, benign growth or even the lid puncta which are the bumps that contain the opening of the tear ducts.
