Hello Ria, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
Eye health is very important to maintain, because the eye is a vital organ that is very sensitive. If you have red eyes and there is a lump on the eyeball but it is not painful and itchy, the chances are:
Pterygium, a reddish-white, triangular membrane that arises from the outside of the eye and inside the eye and reaches the black part of the eye, which is generally caused by exposure to sunlight and air pollution such as dust. Pinguecula, is a yellowish lump on the clear membrane of the eye (conjunctiva). pinguecula is caused the same as peterygium, namely due to exposure to sunlight and dust. Eye clear membrane cyst that looks like a lump in the white eyeball. Eye tumor You should immediately consult an ophthalmologist, because the eye is a very vital organ, so that the cause is immediately known. to find out the cause the doctor will perform a series of examinations on your eye, and the doctor will treat it according to the cause.
