raised bump on the white part of my eye

I have a small growth on the upper left side of my eye, it is not close to my cornea, and it is not discolored, yellowed or otherwise. As far as I can tell, it is clear, or the same color as the white part of my eye. It does not hurt, but I can feel it when I look around. I had to use two mirrors and pull my eye lid back a little to see it. I have looked up eye growths and it doesnt fit any of the descriptions. I just noticed this on my eye, and am a little concerned that it will get bigger. It is not effecting my vision. Any suggestions as to what it could be. Could it go away on its own?

Only an exam can tell. It could be a conjunctiva cyst, pinguecula, pterygium, or growth. Very unlikely to be serious but I would suggest seeing Eye MD just the same. Find one at www.aao.org
