Diagnosis and surgical repair of an eyelid with cancer
All new or growing eyelid bumps and sores that will not heal must be evaluated to ensure they are not eyelid cancer, a malignancy that is common and increasing in frequency.
Early diagnosis and surgical removal offers the best probability of permanently eliminating the tumour.
Benign lumps and bumps can be removed for cosmetic reasons and/or to reassure a patient that a potential health hazard has been removed.
Dr. James Oestreicher, a board certified ophthalmic reconstructive surgeon has many special methods to surgically rebuild the affected eyelid in a manner that virtually eliminates or minimizes any scaring.
"Thanks for helping me get back to where I used to be"
The staff at Dr. Oestreicher's office are also very wonderful and supportive. Now, I look in the mirror and I see a much younger face rather than a tired one that made me feel old before my time. Thanks Dr.O. for helping me get back to where I used to be. I am really loving it.
