Aggressive: Depends on size and location, small tumors are treated with laser surgery.Radiation for larger tumors. Chemotherapy if tumor has spread beyond the eye. The eye may need to be removed if the tumor does not respond to other treatments. If cancer has not spread beyond the eye, almost all patients can be cured.
