Overview of Eye Cancer
Mutation in the cells of an eye can cause eye cancer. It is the most beautiful part of our body, as it captures the outside world. Eye cancer is very difficult to diagnose at an early stage. The most common type of eye cancer is melanoma. Mostly aged people develop this type of cancer. People with a family history of cancer or atypical moles are at greater risk. Although early detection is difficult if one is vigilant enough to minor change it helps in early detection and treatment.
This can occur anywhere on the eyelid, eyeball, lymphatic system adjoining eyes, tear glands, orbit tissue, etc.
Types of Eye Cancer
Some major types are:
- Intraocular: Age factor or a fair skin tone generally contributes to intraocular eye cancer. In this case, cancer starts within the eye.
- Melanoma: Melanin is a substance that gives color to our skin. Melanin-producing cells are present in the eyes. The mutation causes melanoma. A change in size, shape, or color of an eye is an early sign of melanoma. It is also called ocular melanoma.
- Retinoblastoma: It is mostly found in children. As the name suggests, the retina is the major portion involved, which detects light and color.
