Eyelid and Facial Skin Cancer Treatment in Northbrook, IL

What Causes Eyelid Skin Cancer?

Skin cancers, often a result of sun exposure, usually present as painless bumps that crust or bleed. If the cancer is along the eyelid margin, it can result in lash loss.

  • Basal cell
  • Squamous cell
  • Sebaceous cell
  • Melanoma

Treatment Options

These cancers typically grow locally and enlarge and destroy surrounding tissue. Sebaceous cell and melanoma are two more aggressive types and can spread (metastasize) to other areas of the body. Dr. Tresley will completely excise the cancerous area, allowing for clear margins and reconstruction. The removal can be performed under frozen section control or with MOHS micrographical excision. During your consultation, Dr. Tresley will determine which type of excision is warranted by your case.

Dr. Tresley will also determine the type of reconstructive procedure he will use, depending on the size of the defect after excision and the looseness of the remaining tissue. Dr. Tresley utilizes a large array, and will apply the precise one to ensure both the best anatomic and cosmetic results.
