The Cause Of The Lump At The Bridge Of The Nose / Tip Of The Eye?
Night; want to ask r nMy mother has had a lump in the upper nose close to the left eye for 3 weeks, when it comes out it doesn’t look too much but eventually it starts to look clear, I think acne but the color is normal like skin color in general. What does it feel like normal on the arm, but if you press it a bit it hurts a little, why do you think it is? Do you need to see a doctor?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
The lump on the bridge of the nose / tip of the eye that your mother is experiencing could be caused by the following conditions:
Inflammation of the tear ducts (dacryocystitis): characterized by a red lump at the bridge of the nose / tip in the eye, painful when pressed, and can fill with pus. This condition is most often caused by a blockage of the tear glands in the nose Syringoma: a benign tumor originating from the sweat gland around the eye Xanthelasma / xanthoma: a yellowish lump due to fat accumulation Kalazion: a lump on the eyelid due to prolonged (chronic) inflammation, the color of the skin , painless. Hordeolum: lumps on the eyelids due to inflammation, red in color, filled with pus, pain. To determine the cause of your mother's complaint, it is better to consult an ophthalmologist for immediate examination. The doctor will further explore the course of your mother's illness and will conduct a detailed examination of the area around the eye to find out the exact condition of your mother's complaint. If necessary, the doctor will carry out supporting examinations such as examination of patency of the tear ducts, biopsy, blood tests. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for your mother according to the underlying condition.
The things you need to do to prevent worsening and improve the condition are:
Do not press on the lump or try to get its contents out. This can result in a wound that has the potential for infection. Compress with warm water to reduce pain and help expel the contents of the lump (especially if the lump is filled with pus) Wash hands before touching the lump and before touching the eye area Protect the lump and the area around the eye from dust and dirt If the pain is so intense, your mother can take an over-the-counter pain medication such as paracetamol. This is my explanation. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get well soon :)
