whitish yellow thing inside eyelid
For the past several months (that I am aware of) I have had a small whitish/yellow lump inside my lower eyelid that extends to the rim, where it looks like an indentation. it's very small and mainly noticeable when i pull my eyelid away from my eye, though I can see the indentation on the rim.

Could it be a sebaceous cyst - i know it's not a stye or a chalazion?

Thank you, doctor. Is there anything I can be doing at home? How do I do a warm compress without irritating the eye?

It looks like the problem itself began on the very edge of the rim and now some sort of "stuff" is trapped just under the membrane on the inside of the lid.

I am a real worrier, especially since it has not going away by itself. Is it possible to get a skin cancer on the rim/inside of you eyelid? (I am 40 and always wear sunglasses outdoors.)

If you are 40 you need a complete eye exam. you can try warm compresses. Yes you can get skin cancer on the eyelid.
