Eyelid and orbital lesions, whether benign or cancerous, are abnormalities that can affect the eyelids or the deeper structures around the eye. These lesions can manifest as lumps, bumps, or growths on the eyelids or within the orbital area. Benign lesions are non-cancerous growths that may still cause functional or cosmetic concerns, while cancerous lesions can pose a significant threat to one's health. Prompt evaluation and appropriate management are crucial in both cases.

Treatment options for eyelid and orbital lesions depend on several factors, including the type and nature of the lesion, its location, and the overall health of the patient. Benign lesions, such as cysts or benign tumors, may be managed through observation, medical therapies, or surgical excision if they cause discomfort, interfere with vision, or affect appearance. The surgical approach aims to remove the lesion while preserving eyelid function and aesthetics.

In the case of cancerous lesions,the treatment plan may involve surgery to remove the lesion along with surrounding tissue, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or a combination of these modalities. The goal is to completely eradicate the cancer while preserving function and cosmesis as much as possible.
