Lump Around The Right Temple?
Excuse me, I want to ask, near my temples suddenly a small lump appears (from the naked eye is not very clear, but feels hard when held) on the day before yesterday. This lump, if I look at it sometimes shrinks but sometimes it swells up a bit, the shape is also not the same (the right one is bigger and visible from the left one). Besides that, my eyes also seem to feel tired / heavy lately, especially when exposed to bright light.
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Conditions that you experience with the appearance of bumps and eyes that feel tired or severe, can occur because of the same condition or two different conditions that just happen to happen close together. Among the possible diseases are:
Muscle knots or twisting of muscles
Lipoma or growth of fat tissue
Bacterial skin infection
Swollen lymph nodes
Tumors and cancer
As for eyes that can easily get tired can occur due to dry eyes, migraines or headaches, eyed fatigue syndrome and eye irritation. These conditions are generally not caused by stress, but can be caused by being too long in front of the monitor without resting. As for biopsy, at one point it may be needed, but this is not one of the routine checks performed early, unless the signs are very indicative of biopsy. Therefore, it is best to check your condition first with your doctor.
Our advice, you should check your condition with a general practitioner or ophthalmologist, so that you can do further history and physical examination to confirm a number of things, such as how big the bumps are, whether the surface is smooth or rough, whether pain when held, whether there is redness, is there any visual field interference and so on. With all of these things ensured, the possibility of your condition can be clearer and the handling can be more precise. As we said earlier, if your doctor really assesses the need for a biopsy to find out the origin of the lump, your doctor will deliver and recommend it to you.
Meanwhile, no need to worry too much, rest your eyes regularly while working at the computer, which is about every 30-60 minutes. Avoid stress and cigarette smoke, don't rub your eyes and don't need to take medicine without doctor's advice. So, hopefully answering your question.
