It is important to recognize cancerous eyelid growths so they can be removed, just as skin cancers on other parts of the body should be removed, while benign eyelid growths are generally not harmful.

There are several types of cancer that occur on the eyelids. The most common variety (90-95% of eyelid cancers) is basal cell carcinoma, which arises from eyelid skin.
