Skin cancer often involves the skin of the eyelid or adjacent face.
Eyelid skin cancers occur most often on the lower eyelid, but may be found anywhere on the eyelid margins, corners of the eye, eyebrow skin, or adjacent areas of the face. Usually, they appear as painless elevations or nodules.
Occasionally, the eyelashes are distorted or missing. There may be ulcerations of the involved area, along with bleeding, crusting, and/or distortion of the normal skin structure.
Such findings need to be evaluated and may require a biopsy to confirm the diagnosis of skin cancer. Rest assured that most lumps are not malignant but mere benign lumps.
