Could an eye orbital mass be metastatic lung cancer from a 11 mm lung nodule, with no swollen glands or other evidence of cancer?

In brief: Time has taught me..

..That with cancer almost anything is possible.
That said, it would be unlikely for a 1cm lung "nodule" to go only to the orbit, especially if it is not proven to be cancer. I would suggest you discuss this with your doc (there may be details he/she knows that we don't) but seems to me that further imaging or maybe a biopsy are considerations if either of those 2 lesions are suspicious enough.
