What are Eyelid Lesions?

What are the Types of Eyelid Lesions?

Some common benign eyelid lesions include:

  1. Chalazion: A chalazion is a small, painless bump that develops when a gland in the eyelid becomes blocked. It is often treated with warm compresses and, if it does not resolve on its own, may need to be drained by a healthcare provider.
  2. Xanthelasma: Xanthelasma are small, yellowish bumps that occur on the inner corner of the eyelid. They are caused by a buildup of cholesterol in the blood vessels under the skin and are often seen in people with high cholesterol levels. Xanthelasma can be removed by a healthcare provider, but they may recur if the underlying cause (high cholesterol) is not addressed.

Skin cancers can occur at the eyelids. These can include basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. These types of cancer can be serious and may require treatment with surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy.
