If you’re concerned about a suspicious growth on an eyelid or eye area, were diagnosed with eyelid cancer, or are looking for reconstructive surgery after cancer excision, board-certified oculofacial plastic surgeon Dr. Flora Levin can provide the necessary care and treatment.
Symptoms of Eyelid Cancer
Cancer of the eyelids and the surrounding areas are not uncommon. Most common malignant tumors include basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. Tumors may present as eyelid nodules or bumps, pigmented growths, loss of eyelashes, or asymmetric eyelid appearance. Not infrequently, tumors are misdiagnosed as persistent styes or chalazia. Timely diagnosis and correct treatment are crucial for the best long-term outcome as the eyelids are crucial in facial aesthetics and are critical for the health of the eye and vision.
