THE TERM PAPILLOMA refers to a benign epithelial lesion of either the skin or mucosa. Papillomas affecting the eye (bump on eyelid) primarily appear on the skin of the eyelid, but occasionally they may develop on the palpebral and bulbar conjunctivae. All papillomas have a characteristic configuration of lobular projections that can resemble mulberries or cauliflower. They may be flat or planar, or pedunculated. They may present singly or in multiple numbers.
Papillomas are benign growths attached to the face or body. Essentially it’s a bump on eyelid. You will need to have a consultation with Dr. Teal to determine what diagnosis your lesion is and what the best treatment is. These growths are considered a cosmetic problem and are not covered by OHIP.
