Pyogenic Granuloma

This lesion appeared 3 or 4 weeks before the 26 YO Caucasian male presented for an eye exam, at the urging of his spouse. The patient denies any pain, but the lesion is not healing (he picks at it frequently), bleeds a lot, and makes his eyelid droop.

The patient was referred to oculoplastics, where the lump was excised and sent for biopsy under suspicion of carcinoma. The biopsy came back as a benign pyogenic granuloma.
