Eyelid growths/lumps: Some eyelid growths can be concerning or simply annoying. If there are growths that may be irritating or rubbing your eyeball, or you have concerns about skin cancer, Dr. Agarwal can remove those growths with a small procedure in her office. As she identifies with her patient’s fears, she tries to make every removal as quick and painless as possible. Usually only numbing medicine is given, and then it usually takes under five minutes to do the removal. All removed tissue is also sent for microscopic laboratory evaluation so both the doctor and the patient know if any further procedures are necessary. Most growths are benign, but can be irritating or change with time to warrant concern.
