    Can you get a Tophi anywhere on your body ?

    I have what looks like a tophi above my eye on my eye lid. Frown

    It apeared about 3 years ago when i had my first gout attack.

    Thanks for any help.


    Yes, tophi can appear pretty much anywhere, but it is vital that any abnormal growth is checked immediately by a qualified medical professional.



    I have had what you speak of on my eyelid and never gave gout a thought. I have always been able to easily squeeze the little buggers and get a thick white waxy bit out and the “wound” healed invisible in a day or two. Perhaps there were uric acid crystals involved, perpaps not…but out they came.

    I may have had one on my ear also but that popped just as easily. The ears are a common tophi site, the eyelidss not.
