Ocular Cancers and Other Tumors

Eye Cancer (Melanoma and Lymphoma) are cancers that start in the eye, of which there are two basic types.

Primary Intraocular Cancers

Primary intraocular cancers begin inside the eyeball. In adults, the most common of this type of cancer is melanoma, though it is fairly rare. It is much less frequent than melanoma of the skin. The next most common primary intraocular cancer is primary intraocular lymphoma.

Retinoblastoma is a cancer rising from cells in the retina and is the most common primary intraocular cancer in children with the next most common type being medulloepithelioma (though this is also extremely rare).

Secondary Intraocular Cancers

Secondary intraocular cancers begin somewhere other than the eye, then spread to the eye. They are not really considered “eye cancers” and they are much more common than primary intraocular cancers. They are also referred to as metastatic cancers.

The two most common types of cancer that spread to the eye are breast cancer and lung cancer. They predominantly spread to the part of the eyeball called the uvea.

The American Cancer Society has much documentation on these cancers on their What Is Eye Cancer page. They also provide a good explanation of the three major parts of the eye: the eyeball (globe), the orbit, and the adnexal structures. It is very beneficial to understand the normal structure and function of the eye when learning about eye cancer or anything that affects the eye.

Eyelid Tumors

An eyelid tumor called basal cell carcinoma is the most common eyelid tumor and it is cancerous. It can grow arouind the eye as well as spread to other poarts of the body.

Benign Tumors

The most common benign growth to be concerned about when it comes to your eyes is called an orbital dermoid cyst. While not cancerous, it can be very dangerous, put pressure on the optic nerve, and lead to vision loss.
