Where is it? Is it irritating the sclera or cornea (white of the eye/color of the eye) in any way? Is it on the lid itself or the edge?
I'd watch it for a few days and see if it changes AT ALL> If it grows then find a vet and get there. But otherwise Friday will allow you to watch it for a couple of days. If it's irritating the eye then you may have to decide to do something else. You might at least want to get some of the gel artificial tears and keep that eye well lubricated until you can get to someone you trust.

That is pretty much what it likely is -- sometimes the core will come out easily and sometimes it has to be removed surgically. Foxy's stayed static for months and then suddenly worsened and before it became something 'bad' we had it removed. If the vet has to surgically remove it, an e-collar is a necessity so the dog doesn't scratch at it and tear the eye lid/eye. But Foxy's healed just fine. The vet actually cut a little 'v' out of the eyelid and sewed it closed but it healed great and you couldn't even tell a few months later.
