Benign Eyelid Lesions

In her many years of successful practice, Dr. Abedi has encountered various types of eyelid lesions, some of which can be observed while others need to be removed. More often that not eyelid lesions that appear to be benign are usually that. Biopsy’s are preformed in order to make certain of an accurate diagnosis. Another reason is because there are over a dozen different types of eyelid lesions that can occur around the eyelid. The most common of which is skin cancer, for example, basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, sebaceous cell carcinoma. There is also benign lesions such as cysts, moles (also termed nevi), cholesterol deposits (also termed xanthelasma), skin tags, hemangiomas, papillomas, syringomas, chalazions or styes, actinic keratosis, and seborrheic keratosis.
