DEAR DR. K: I have small white bumps on my eyelids that drive me crazy. They don't hurt, but they look awful. A doctor told me they are meibomian cysts. He said they are harmless, but if I want to get rid of them, I'll need surgery. What do you think?
DEAR READER: These little cysts are harmless in one respect: They are not a form of cancer. But I wouldn't call them harmless if they bother you every time you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror.
