Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Basically, it is difficult for doctors to make a diagnosis of the disease causing the lump without doing a physical examination directly. There are a number of things that need to be assessed in relation to lump complaints in your mother. How old is he Where exactly is the lump? Since when has the lump existed? What is the number and size of the lump?
In general, there are several possible causes for bumps on the side of the eye, including:
Dermoid cysts, which are congenital abnormalities that arise in areas of embryonal fusion of the skin, usually in the facial area, especially on the forehead, outer corners of the eyes, and the base of the nose, symptoms: palpable lumps that are springy, filled with fluids such as oil, may contain skin-supporting elements (eg : hair, sweat glands)
Atheroma cysts, which are fluid-filled sacs formed by obstruction in the estuary of the oil gland (sebaceous), cause the glandular products to accumulate and form a mass, more commonly found at the age of 20-30 years, in the form of small lumps just under the skin, round, soft - chewy, firm boundary, there is a peak (puncta), generally painless, the most frequent location is an area with many oil glands: face, head, behind the ears, neck, back, pubic area
Lipomas, which are benign soft tissue tumors, originate from fat tissue and are surrounded by thin fibrous capsules, in the form of lumps, are painless, can be moved to the bottom, no skin changes on them, soft dense
Ganglion cysts, which are bags filled with thick clear fluid, have thin walls, originating from the synovial membrane bulge of the joint or tendon sheath, located under the skin in the area around the joints, most often located on the wrists, ankles, or behind the knees
So that the cause of the lump can be known and given the appropriate treatment, we advise your mother to be examined directly to a doctor or surgeon. In addition to the history and physical examination, the doctor may recommend a supplementary examination (if there are indications, for example: biopsy, x-rays, ultrasound). The treatment given will be adjusted to the underlying disease. As a suggestion, your mother is advised to get enough rest and eat a balanced nutritious diet. If there is pain, your mother can use paracetamol at the dosage according to the rules of use listed on the drug packaging.
