Answer to Eye Bump Quiz
Thanks for the guesses and even doctors can get it wrong.
The answer is #3 Syringoma. These are non-cancerous (benign) bumps that are caused by the overgrowth of cells from sweat glands. They most often cluster around the eye, but they can be found on other parts of the body like the upper chest, armpits, vulva, and face. They are more common in women than men. They can be treated with laser or electrosurgery for cosmetic reasons only.
