Eyelid Lesion Surgery

PERFORMED IN DULUTH, GA (NORTH OF ATLANTA) at Georgia Eye Physicians & Surgeons

 

Eyelid lesions are a common eye condition, and are generally benign in nature. However, it’s important to first identify if the eyelid lesion is benign or possibly malignant before determining a removal treatment. Excision is generally used to remove benign growths. For growths that may be malignant, Dr. Segal will biopsy a portion of the lesion to compare both normal and abnormal tissue.

Skin cancer of the eyelid is relatively common and includes basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, sebaceous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. Basal cell carcinoma is the most common type of skin cancer occurring on the eyelids. It does not metastasize to other areas of the body but will continue to grow and affect surrounding tissue if not removed. Squamous cell carcinoma, sebaceous cell carcinoma, and melanoma are rarer forms of skin cancer on the eyelid, but are very aggressive. It’s imperative to ensure the entire cancerous lesion has been removed to prevent additional health problems.

During an in-office consultation Dr. Segal will examine the lesion or growth before recommending a treatment plan or surgery. For more information about eyelid lesion surgery please call our office to schedule an appointment.
