A meibomiam cyst, also known as a chalazion, is an enlargement of the meibomian gland, an oil-producing gland located in the eyelid. The word “chalazion” is derived from the Greek word “small lump,” and it refers to the clogged gland opening.

In contrast to styes, which are characterized by an infected eyelash follicle and frequently manifest as a red, itchy lump near the edge of the eyelid, internal hordeolums are styes that develop inside or beneath the eyelid.

A chalazia is a benign growth that sometimes develops when a stye doesn’t heal; it is larger than a stye, usually doesn’t hurt, and isn’t cancerous. Chalazia tend to develop farther from the edge of the eyelid than styes.
