There are many causes for an eyelid lump and most of them are non-cancerous tumors. The most common cause for a red lump inside your eyelid is an area of focal inflammation called a chalazion. This condition is a cyst in the eyelid, caused by an inflammation of a blocked meibomian gland, and appears most frequently on the upper eyelid. This condition usually develops after a stye, and the eyelid generally becomes tender, red, swollen and warm. In some cases, the blocked gland which is causing the stye will not drain even though the redness and swelling wears off. This gland will form a firm, non-tender nodule in the eyelid, and that is a chalazion.
Because your eyelid lump is still red, it may be still a stye, but given the duration, it may be heading towards a chalazion. You should keep in mind that there are malignant tumors that look like benign ones. In any case, any type of eyelid lump can turn into a more serious condition and eventually affect your vision.
