Eyelid & Facial Skin Cancer
Abnormal skin growths around the eye are a common occurrence. While many bumps are not harmful (benign), they can also be cancerous (malignant) and need to be removed by someone with proper training. It is always better to have these lesions evaluated sooner rather than later if you have a suspicious growth.
Types of Skin Cancer Commonly Treated
- Basal Cell Carcinoma
- Squamous Cell Carcinoma
- Sebaceous Carcinoma
The goal with any skin cancer is to remove it. Different treatment options are available depending on the size and location. Around the eyelid, the goal is to preserve the facial appearance while still allowing the eyelid to move and provide facial expressions. Due to the complex anatomy of the face, is it important to see a surgeon who has gone through extensive training to make sure you get the best possible result.
Dr. Neel Kumar completed years of training in order to specialize in treating cancers on the face. We will work with you to develop a care plan based on your individual case and needs.
