Lid Tumours

Lid Tumours

Eyelid tumours, also known as lid tumours, are abnormal growths that occur on the eyelid. These can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous) and can affect anyone, regardless of age or gender. Eyelid tumours can impact a person’s vision and overall eye health, making it crucial to address them promptly.

The causes of eyelid tumours vary and can range from genetic predispositions to environmental factors such as prolonged exposure to sunlight. Basal cell carcinoma is the most common type of malignant eyelid tumour, often linked to excessive sun exposure. Other benign forms of eyelid tumours can result from conditions such as papillomas or cysts.

Symptoms of eyelid tumours include a noticeable growth on the eyelid, changes in the texture or colour of the eyelid skin, persistent itching or irritation, and in some cases, vision disturbance. These symptoms should not be ignored, as early detection is key to effective treatment.

Treatment for Lid Tumours

Treatment for eyelid tumours depends on the type and stage of the tumour. Non-cancerous tumours may be monitored, or they may require surgical removal if they are causing discomfort or vision impairment. Malignant tumours usually require surgical removal, and in some cases, additional treatments such as radiation or chemotherapy may be necessary.
