Long term exposure to sun causes our eyelids to be the most common place for eyelid tumors to occur.
Most eyelid lesions are benign and easily treated by simple excision. The most common eyelid skin cancer types are basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. The symptoms could be a subtle bump, non-resolving “chalazion, lash loss, or ulcerating non-healing nodule. The presence of a nodule or lesion on the eyelid that grows, bleed or ulcerates should be evaluated. The diagnosis is made by examination and biopsy.
