Mother had this surgically removed, did not recur. Sister also had hers surgically removed, hers came back. She did not have them retreated and they have progressed over much of her upper eyelid. Mine were surgically removed 4 years ago with excellent result and just started reappearing approx. 3 weeks ago.
