    Anyone seen anything like this before?
    He has had a very small pimple on his eyelid for a while now, but overnight it expanded to this.

    It looks worse in these pictures than it actually is, it doesn't seem to be touching the eyeball at all.
    Vets again tomorrow I think :rolleyes:

    My sisters lab has something like that on her and am sure the vet told her it was a cyst. Shes having it removed but only because shes having a fat lump removed to BOGOF deal at the vets.
    Will ask her later when I speak to her to double check.

    Just given her a tinkle and she said she just noticed it one day and thought it was a blocked tear duct, popped her to the vets and they said its a benign tumour, not nasty but to keep an eye on it because they can get bigger and in the way. Her labs like a patch work quilt from all the fatty lumps an bumps shes had off.
    She said don't worry x

    Thanks. I do think if it gets any bigger it will have to come off.
    We are always at the vet at the mo, so will get it checked next time I'm there.
    Alfie is at that age when he will start getting lumps and bumps :(
