|Hi, Winnie! I'm named Winnie, too!
Lots of possibilities, the best of which is something called a chalazion. Basically, these specialized glands associated with your eyelids sometimes get plugged up and the body elicits a local inflammatory response to the sebaceous material that gets trapped inside. People get them, too (you've probably heard of eye "sties"). Papilloma is another possibility. Of course, doggies like people can get tumors associated with eyelids, including melanoma. Best to have your vet check it out. If the mass is big enough, he or she may try doing some exfoliative cytology, or perhaps will need to biopsy it to figure out what it is.
Best of luck.
