Eyelid Cancers and Orbital Tumors


Skin cancers can affect the eyelid, eyelid margin and brow region.  The most common skin cancer to affect the eyelid is basal cell carcinoma. This type of cancer is primarily caused by ultraviolet light exposure. Most cancers of the eyelid are curable when identified and treated early.  It is important to note that not all lesions on the eyelid are cancerous.  The oculoplastic surgeons at Minnesota Eye Consultants are trained to recognize and distinguish cancerous from non-cancerous lesions and can recommend appropriate treatment.

Oculoplastic surgeons are uniquely trained to reconstruct the eyelid after it has been affected by cancer. Our goal is to provide a complete cure of the disease and repair the eyelid in the most aesthetically pleasing manner possible.

If you are concerned about a bump on your eyelid or a raised, irregular lesion appears, call Minnesota Eye Consultants for an examination.
