Chalazion archive

This Clinica London blog is to inform our patients about the chalazion condition, the different treatments, and the technology and techniques we use to treat it.

A chalazion (also known as meibomian cyst) appears as a lump on the eyelid. A common condition, it is benign and easily recognised and diagnosed. It can be treated either medically or surgically.

Get rid of any eyelid lesion without having too much downtime!

If you have a lesion on your eyelid, it’s vital that you have it checked. It may be something harmless, such as a skin tag, cyst or mole, but there is also the chance that it might be a cancer, so it’s essential to get the right diagnosis. If the lesion is suspicious, one of our consultant ophthalmologists will remove it and carry out a biopsy. If the lesion is benign, we will simply remove it swiftly and painlessly. We offer a special one-stop assessment and treatment package for any kind of abnormal tissue on the eyelid. Read on to find out further details.

How do you know whether you need medical or surgical treatment for your chalazion (eyelid lump)?

Many people who find a lump on their eyelid - a chalazion - want to know if it should be treated medically and perhaps operated on. Here we discuss the factors that govern these decisions and the preparation needed for surgery, the technical term for which is the incision and curettage of a chalazion.

Surgical treatment for your chalazion (eyelid lump)

Surgery on your eyelid lump - in more technical terms, the incision and curettage of a chalazion - needn’t be something to be concerned about, being successful more than 80% of the time. Often the lump will never reappear. The operation is carried out under local anaesthetic, meaning that you will feel no pain. Here’s what to expect when the day comes.
