A chalazion is a small, normally painless lump on the edge of an eyelid which can be caused by the blockage of the gland at the base of an eyelash.

It often goes way without treatment or a warm compress after a month however, on occasion an incision needs to be made on the eyelid for the fluid to drain away from it.

It is usually a benign cyst but sometimes is sebaceous gland carcinoma which can be highly malignant and potentially lethal so early diagnosis and treatment is the key to optimum survival.

Amid her social media posts, Ayda also showed off a picture of her husband Robbie, 48, having some chill out time on the bed with his laptop as he hugged a cushion.

It’s not the first medical procedure for Ayda in recent months.

The American model and actress recently underwent extensive blood testing amid her mother Gwen's cancer diagnosis and battles with Lupus and Parkinson's Disease.

Meanwhile in May, Ayda enjoyed a lush spread of food and a martini after getting a colonoscopy. 

The beauty documented the medical procedure as she shared a candid selfie in a hospital gown and mask, calling her attire 'colonoscopy chic' and urging followers to '#getchecked'. 

The posts followed the aftermath of the treatment, which saw Ayda loading up on junk food including bread, a burger, some fries and 'a cookie the size of (her) face'.

The Loose Women panelist also shared a selfie after the colonoscopy saying she's 'feeling better and ready to tackle the rest of the day'. 

Patients undergoing a colonoscopy have to eat only plain food for two days before their procedure so Ayda more than made up for it with treats afterwards. 

The procedure sees the endoscopic examination of the large bowel and the distal part of the small bowel with a CCD camera or a fiber optic camera on a flexible tube passed through the anus.

The American Cancer Society recommends that women (and men) who are at an average risk for colon cancer begin screening at age 45 and then receive a colonoscopy once every 10 years until age 75 if they are in generally good health.
