Benign Eyelid Lesions
Dr. Zoumalan encounters various types of eyelid lesions, some of which can be observed while others need to be removed. Although eyelid lesions that appear benign are usually benign, a biopsy is often indicated in order to make sure there is an accurate diagnosis. There are dozens of different types of eyelid lesions that can occur around the eyelid, the most common include skin cancer (such as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, sebaceous cell carcinoma), 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.
Preoperative Diagnosis: Right lower lid chalazion.
Procedure performed: Excision of right lower lid chalazion. Dr. Zoumalan performed this procedure in the office using local anesthesia only. The lesion recurred and required steroid injections to help resolve the inflammation
