chalazion
Explanation:
Caption: Picture 1. This woman has an acute sty on her lower eyelid and a chalazion on her upper eyelid.
A chalazion is a lump in the eyelid that is caused by inflammation of a gland within the skin. Typically this lump grows over days to weeks and is occasionally red, warm, or painful.

A chalazion is not a sty. A sty can resemble a chalazion in the sense that it is also a lump in the eyelid. However, a sty involves glands and eyelash hair follicles that are closer to the skin surface of the eyelid. In addition, a sty is usually more painful and looks infected.
