Eyelid and Facial Skin Cancer Overview

As we age, the skin on our eyelids and faces can become thin and delicate. This, in combination with years of exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun, can make us more susceptible to developing skin cancer. Skin cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the outermost layer of skin, and overall is quite common among a wide range of patients.
While there is no guaranteed way to prevent skin cancers, Dr. Sohrab has options for providing quick and effective treatment. Our focus is on delivering results that restore the health, function, and aesthetic of your eyelids all at once.

What Are My Treatment Options for Eyelid Skin Cancer?

The eyelid is a common place for skin cancers to develop, and because of this, there are many eyelid cancer treatments available. The type and severity of eyelid cancer you have will play a role in determining which treatment is best for you. In general, the sooner you receive treatment, the easier and faster your treatment process can be.
Some of the most common eyelid cancer treatments include:
  • Surgery: eyelid cancer surgery is often the best option for treating eyelid cancer. Depending on the size, location, and type of eyelid cancer, surgery may involve removing the cancerous tissue along with a small amount of healthy tissue surrounding it.
  • Radiation therapy: this treatment uses high energy beams to destroy cancer cells. Radiation therapy is often used in conjunction with surgery or as a follow-up treatment after surgery.
  • Chemotherapy: this eyelid cancer treatment uses drugs to kill cancer cells. For eyelid cancer, chemotherapy typically is only topical, providing a lighter treatment experience.
