surgery question

I have just been told I need surgery to remove a lump from my lower eyelid. It's a solid lump, it normally doesn't hurt, and it's very noticable. My doctor doesn't know what it is, and had referred me to a surgeon. I'm pretty sure I have this. I've had the lump since January, done the antibiotics thing and the hot compresses.

Apparently it's cosmetic surgery, and it won't be covered by OHIP. Can anyone explain why it would be cosmetic, when it's a lump that just grew in my face? It's not like I'm getting a nose job.

Also, anyone have a rough guess at how much it'll cost me?

Have you had surgery before? I technically have, I guess, to remove my wisdom teeth.
