In brief: Eye cancer

The list is very long-- it includes, but is not limited to-- retinoblastoma, melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, rhabdomyosarcoma.
Some eye cancer has a relatively good prognosis, especially if picked up early. Some eye cancer can be fatal.

In brief: Eye cancer

Cancer can be primary in the eye arising from almost any of the internal eye tissues or metastatic from another source - principally breast and prostate.
If you suspect cancer in your eye, see an ophthalmologist as soon as possible.
