- Chalazion: This is a common type of eyelid tumor that occurs when a gland in the eyelid becomes blocked. It often causes a small bump on the eyelid and can be treated with warm compresses, antibiotic ointments, or surgical excision.
- Papilloma: This is a type of benign tumor that occurs on the eyelid’s surface and appears as a small wart-like growth. Surgical excision is usually the preferred treatment for this type of tumor.
- Cyst: A cyst is a fluid-filled sac that can occur on the eyelid. It may be caused by a blocked gland or hair follicle. Surgical excision may be necessary to remove the cyst.
- Xanthelasma: This is a yellowish deposit of fat that can occur on the eyelids. It is usually benign and does not require treatment unless it causes cosmetic concerns.
- Nevus: This is a benign growth that occurs when pigment cells grow in the skin. It can occur on the eyelids and can be surgically excised if it is causing cosmetic or functional problems.
While these tumors are usually benign, it is important to have them evaluated by a healthcare provider to ensure that they are not cancerous or potentially harmful. In some cases, surgical removal may be necessary to prevent the tumor from growing or causing symptoms.
