Dificult to tell from the pic. How is she otherwise?

I would recommend to get it checked out by a vet. It could be as simple as a husk which is stuck in the eye - difficult to tell from the photo. Doesn't look like a poke injury to me - Normally the eye goes cloudy.

Hopefully someone who knows better will come along. But I would say def get it checked by a vet as eye problems can be a sign of something else which is wrong.

All the best

Ahhhhhhhhhh poor piggy:(
Perhaps maybe something has got in the back of the eye and has caused this,i would of thought if it was something like a growth it would of come up slowly but then I'm not a vet,
Hope your piggy will be fine and its nothing serious:)xx

its the same really, took her to the vet today, and the lump had scabbed over but scab fell off the lump. it is red and had bled a little and slightly inflamed. the vets given me some eye drops and wants to see her again on tues, she said that it looked like it was on a stalk, it doesn't seem to be bothering her. the vet was talking about operating on it, this i am not sure about.
