eyelid bump

Hi, one day I suddenly noticed this bump recently behind my eyelid. As far as I can tell it doesn't hurt but its remained since I noticed it a few days back. Any ideas what it could be? Thanks

Very blurry picture but I think it looks like a chalazion.  I would try warm compresses for a couple of weeks.  If it doesn't go away, go see an ophthalmologist.  Rarely, this could be something bad so do not ignore it if it doesn't go away and get it looked at.
