Minnie had one of these a year ago- the vet said it was likely a blocked tear duct .They gave us antibiotic drops to put in her eye/under the eyelid twice a day. The lump gradually went away after a couple of weeks.I think they are quite common. Minnie's didnt bother her either- it bothered me more

At this time of year I wouldnt rule out a sting or insect bite!! These may linger especially around the eye area.

Hopefully vets can sort ya out!!

Thanks guys, i think it is bothering me more! Typical isnt it! Hadnt thought about an insect bite - he does run around like a mad thing offlead on our walks so more than possible. Plus we have a wasp nest in our front garden, he's never in the front but I suppose they could have come to the back. Cant see anything actually in the red lump tho .
