In brief: Eye cancer

Cancer occurs in any part of the body, including the eye.
Although there are many types of eye cancer, one prominent type is ocular melanoma, which may begin in the eye, or may spread to the eye from the skin. Ask your eye doctor to check your eyelids and eyes for any signs of cancer. Wear sunglasses when outside in the bright sunshine and use sunscreen.
