Eyelid and Facial Skin Cancers
Growths on or around the eyelids and face are common. The vast majority of these lesions is benign and can be easily removed in the office with excellent results and little if any discomfort. The approach to growths on the eyelids and face is similar to elsewhere on the body in that changes in appearance, size or color are all considered important to bring to the attention of your doctor who will then carefully evaluate these eyelid and facial growths. Sometimes a quick and relatively simple in office biopsy procedure may be required to determine whether the lesion is problematic. Should the growth in question be malignant, we can remove it and provide the necessary level of treatment or surgery to create a proper cosmetic result. There are several types of malignant growths of the eyelid and face that we want to observe and identify.
