Eye cancer is a very rare kind of cancer that starts somewhere in or on the eye or in the skin of cells around the eye.
Because eye cancer is so rare, if you are diagnosed, it's best to seek treatment from someone who specializes in this field. Ask your doctor for the name of an eye cancer specialist.
Treatment for eye cancer depends on the location of the tumor. Surgery is the primary treatment for many eye cancers, but cryotherapy, radiation, and chemotherapy may also be used.
Learn more about eye cancer from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Physician Data Query (PDQ®) for patients. It includes information about prevention, screening, and treatment.
