Eyelid & Facial Growths
Lesions on the face are a common occurrence. These can range from skin growths, to irritating bumps (sometimes due to a chalazion) or infections (such as an abscess). 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 growths evaluated sooner rather than later if you are suspicious.
Types of Lesions Typically Treated
- Chalazion (often associated with blepharitis)
- Abscess, Hordeolum, or Styes
- Skin Tags
- Warts on the eyelid
- Sun Spots
- Mole (nevus)
- Skin Cancer

- Sebaceous Carcinoma
Dr. Neel Kumar completed years of training in order to specialize in treating cancers and skin growths on the face. Due to the complex anatomy of the face, is it important to see a doctor who has gone through extensive training to make sure you get the best possible result. For added convenience, many of these lesions can be treated on the same day you meet with Dr. Kumar. We will work with you to develop a care plan based on your individual case and needs.
