Eyelid Tumors, Lesions and Cysts

The skin on your eyelids is the thinnest and most sensitive skin on your body. As a result of this, your eyelids are the first part of your face to show changes from sun damage or the natural aging process. Unfortunately, sun damage and other environmental toxins not only cause the skin to age, but can commonly cause serious damage. Skin cancer of the eyelids is relatively common and several types exist. The presence of a nodule or lesion on the eyelid that grows, bleed or ulcerates should be evaluated as soon as possible. The evaluation usually involves examination and sometimes a biopsy. Not all nodules or lesions are cancerous, most are benign. They can typically be removed if they cause symptoms or present an aesthetic concern, but are often left alone. All eyelid tumors, lesions and cysts should be assessed by your ophthalmologist and at that point be removed, if indicated.
