Eyelid Cancer Symptoms

People with eyelid skin cancer may experience the following symptoms or signs. Sometimes people with eyelid cancer do not show any of the symptoms listed below. Or, these symptoms may be caused by a medical condition that is not cancer.

Mohs Surgery Procedure

Often these cancers will be removed by a procedure called Mohs surgery (performed by a dermatologist) but reconstruction of the eyelid to restore its natural anatomy is performed by an oculoplastic eye surgeon.

Mohs surgery is a method for treating skin cancer lesions. During this procedure, the surgeon removes thin layers of skin one layer at a time and examines each layer under a microscope to determine if any cancer remains. This procedure continues until only cancer-free tissue remains.

Since its development, Mohs surgery has been refined into the most precise and advanced treatment for skin cancer, yielding success rates up to 99%. Mohs surgery is so effective because it evaluates the tissue surrounding the cancer more thoroughly than traditional skin cancer surgery techniques. As a result, it is considered the gold standard treatment for high-risk skin cancers, such as those located on the head and neck or those with aggressive growth patterns.
