The eyelids have very frequent disease with aesthetic and functional problems. Sometimes eyelid tumors appear as small olive or ulceration which if neglected could be fatal to the health of our eyes.
There are benign tumors, such as molluscum contagiosum, akrochodonas (wart), seborrheic keratosis, senile keratosis, papilloma, xanthelasmata and keratoacanthoma. There are malignant tumors such as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and sebaceous gland carcinoma.
Basal cell carcinoma is the most common malignant tumor of the eyelid and does not metastasize. Can be ulcerative, nodular, sclerosing or morphea type. The treatment is surgical removal of the tumor and restoration of the eyelid.
The squamous cell carcinoma is a rare form ulcers, nodule, papilloma or cutaneous horn and metastasizes. Treated by wide excision of the tumor and restoration of the eyelid. The sebaceous gland carcinoma is a rare tumor and appears as recurrent chalazion or chronic blepharitis. Treated with wide excision. For this reason, should be given special attention and consult our doctor often.
