eye scared

Couple of months ago I noticed a lump above my right eyelid in the crease (lacrimal gland). I keep an eye on it and became concerned when it became very visible.  It is not infected or tender to the touch.  However it is placing pressure on the eyeball and the area is heavy.

Udate on lump in eyelid crease. I have a mass right lacrimal gland. Believes its not cancerous however, more tests are required for treatment options. What are possible treatment options?  Thank you again for your time.

Orbital CT or MRI most helpful. At times needle biopsy.

Did you ever find out what it was? I have the same thing! Mine is a pea size lump. I already had surgery to remove it, but the dr couldn't find it during the surgery. It was awful. Now it's still there and I'm still worried.
