Eyelid Lesion Removal


Bumps, nodules, and spots around the eyelids can be frustrating, bothersome, and sometimes
harmful. While some lesions are bothersome only for cosmetic reasons, others can interfere
with proper functioning of the eyelid. Others still could represent more serious conditions such
as skin cancer.

Removal of lesions around the eyelid is a delicate procedure, since the shape and function of
the eyelid can be affected with surgery. Therefore, this type of procedure should be done by an
oculoplastics surgeon who is trained to work on the delicate tissues of the eyelid.

Some lesions that are suspicious for possible medical disease will be sent to the pathology lab
for examination.
