Unknown mass in sclera

Edited , 2 users are following.

I have seen 2 doctors so far. They do not know what is that lump inside my eye.

It is a soft white lump in sclera which is a bit on my cornea as well. No symptoms.

Did not go away with medicine. Has no vessels. And its 100% on the surface, it doesnt have a root inside the eye.

They told me straight up they have no idea, they have never seen it before. They ruled out pterygium because it doesnt start near the nose and it doesnt have vessels.. They ruled out penincuela because its soft and white.

Any ideas please? Anyone with a similar experience?

    Conjunctival cyst possibly?? Have your doctors suggested a biopsy? Does it bother you in any way..eg dry eye, problem closing lid, sight disturbance?

      yes, he took it out and said it was kind of a cyst. it had water in it, but it was also a bit thick so he thinks it might have been a cyst with a bit of pterygium because of the thickness. didnt really fit any diagnosis but he didnt suggest a biopsy. because he said there was no inflammation and no vessels... we will see how it goes...

    Just a thought...have you had an injury to your eye at any time in the past?

    Just wanted to say that this is might be a bit more sinister. The cyst was taken out. But now it came back already within a week and now the docs suspect there might be something dodgy inside the eye. It has no cancerous appearance at all. However, it is sinister..

    Just wanted to point it out in case someone ever comes across a similar situation.

    Biopsy is the only way to go. Even if something looks 100% innocent and clear.
