What are eyelid tumors?
Eyelid tumors are abnormal growths around the eyes that may be either benign or malignant. While basal cell carcinoma is the most common malignant type of tumor, several other types may occur along the eyelid as well. Benign growths such as simple cysts or styes (chalazia) may also occur. Too much exposure to sunlight is a significant risk factor for developing skin cancer of the eyelids.
If you are diagnosed with an eyelid tumor, the specialists at the Abramson Cancer Center will provide comprehensive care including treatment and support services to ensure optimal recovery. Find out more about ocular cancer.
