What are orbital tumors?

Orbital tumors are abnormal growths of tissue in the structures that surround the eye. These lesions may be either benign or malignant, and may arise primarily from the orbit or may spread (metastasize) from elsewhere in the body. The most common types of orbital tumors vary considerably by age, but include cysts, vascular lesions (arising from blood vessels), lymphomas, neurogenic tumors (arising from nerves), and secondary tumors (either metastatic or spread directly from the surrounding sinuses or cranium).

Together with the Abramson Cancer Center, we provide comprehensive care for orbital tumors of the eyes. Talk to your doctor today about the various treatment options available at Penn Medicine for ocular cancers.
