What are the signs of eyelid cancer?

Signs of cancer on the eyelid include the following:

  • Spontaneous bleeding: This is when a bump or growth bleeds on its own (not because the person is picking it). This is a sign of cancer because as a cancer grows it can outgrow its blood supply and blood vessels can tear and leak blood.
  • Loss of eyelashes: If there is a growth on the eyelid and there is a loss of eyelashes there, it could be a sign of eyelid cancer.
  • Loss of eyelid architecture: If the structure of the eyelid is damaged or destroyed, meaning things don’t look the same as before, this could be cancer.
