An ulceration (broken skin) on the eyelid that does not heal, or a spreading, colored mass on the skin around the eyes are two symptoms of eyelid and periocular skin cancer.
Eyelid cancer develops on or in the skin of the eyelid. Eyelid cancer can be one of 4 types: melanoma, basal cell, squamous cell or sebaceous carcinoma.
Periocular skin cancer occurs in the skin around the eyes. Most instances are basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma.
