Tiny bump on my eyeball

This morning when I was washing the sleep out of my eyes I could feel something in my eye. I thought, maybe it is  an eyelash, maybe lint, cat hair, who knows. Turns out it is a tiny little bump in the white part my eyeball. It has no color and they only way I can see it is if I look over to the right really close to the mirror. It does not move. I tried to kinda gently "scrape" it off but it won't move. It doesn't hurt, but it is annoying the **** out of me. I have never had eye problems. I do not wear glasses. I am freaking out, is it going to get bigger? I don't want to run to the doctor if it is nothing, but if it doesn't go away in a few days, I guess I will have to. Any comments will be appreciated. Thanks!!

If it doesn't hurt, you vision isn't bad and it doesn't get bigger its not likely serious. It could be a cyst of the conjunctiva.  If it changes see an eye MD
