One percent of all skin cancers affect the eyelids. Typically these skin cancers result from
the accumulative effects of sun exposure over years and years. Basal cell carcinoma is
the most common eyelid skin cancer followed by squamous cell carcinoma. Melanoma
can occur. Other eyelid cancers include sebaceous cell carcinoma and neoplasms arising
from sweat glands and hair shaft follicles. In all cases early detection and treatment is
suggested. Reconstruction and creation of a functional and naturally appearing eyelid
following ski cancer excision is frequently performed by Doctor Rodgers using the most
advance surgical techniques.
