Basal Cell Carcinoma

Basal Cell Carcinoma is the most common eyelid malignancy and accounts for approximately 90% of malignant eyelid tumors. These are most often located on the lower eyelid margin and near the medial canthus. Occasionally, they may occur on the upper eyelids as well.

Basal Cell Carcinomas commonly appear as firm, raised, pearly nodules, which may be associated with blood vessels and possible central ulceration. Surgery is the treatment of choice for all basal cell carcinomas of the eyelid. Surgical excision affords the advantages of complete tumor removal with histological control of the margins. It has the lowest recurrence rate compared to other treatment modalities.
