Eye Cancer

Basal cell carcinoma

Basal cell carcinoma is a common type of skin cancer that can develop around the eye, typically involving the skin or glands of the eyelid. Symptoms include a firm, waxy tumorous mass on the eyelid, which can also sometimes scab up, usually appearing on the lower eyelid.

 

Retinoblastoma

Retinoblastoma is an eye cancer that develops in the retina and can be detected by signs such as a white colour in the pupil when light or flash is shone in the eye, swelling and redness, or a lazy eye. It is most common in young children but can occur in adults.

Uveal melanoma

Uveal melanoma is cancer that involves the uveal tract, made up of the iris, ciliary body and choroid. Tumours develop from the melanocytes that give the eye its colour. It can sometimes be identified by a change in pupil shape or a dark spot in the iris. Although most patients don’t exhibit symptoms, symptoms include blurred vision, floaters, and severe eye pain, which highlights the importance of regular eye exams.

 

Choroidal melanoma

Choroidal melanoma, a subtype of uveal melanoma, is cancer that develops in the choroid, the tissue of the eye between the sclera and retina. The tumours can enlarge, causing retinal detachment and vision loss, and in some cases, the tumours may metastasize to other areas of the body.
