What Is Eye Cancer? Understand Your Disease

Carcinoma of the eye is uncommon and occurs when normal cells mutate and grow rapidly in a disorganized way, forming a mass in the eye. This type of cancer is not always confined to the eyeball. In fact, it can start in or infect the eyelid, which is made up of skin, muscles, and nerves.

Eye Cancers We Treat at New Hope Unlimited

Many different types of eye cancer occur in adults, including:

Intraocular melanoma

Melanoma of the eye begins in cells that make the pigment melanin in the eye.

Squamous cell eye carcinoma

This cancer begins in tissues that cover structures in the eye.

Lymphoma of the eye

Intraocular lymphoma can develop in the retina and the vitreous of the eye. It also affects the optic nerve at the back of the eye.

Eye Cancer Symptoms

Eye cancer does not always cause visible symptoms and may only be picked up during a routine eye exam. In general, signs of eye cancer include:

  • Blurred vision
  • Flashes of light in your vision
  • Shadows or a dark spot in the eye that enlarges over time
  • Partial or total loss of vision
  • Bulging or swelling of one eye
  • A lump on the eyelid or in your eye that is growing in size
  • Pain in or around your eye

Minor ocular conditions can also cause these symptoms, meaning they are not necessarily a sign of cancer. However, it is important to get any symptoms checked by an ophthalmologist as soon as possible.

Eye Cancer Risks Factors and Prevention

Risk factors for eye melanoma include:

  • Age. The risk is highest over the age of 50
  • Gender. Eye melanoma is more common in men than women
  • Race. Melanoma of the eye is more prevalent in Caucasians
  • Blue, grey, green, or generally light-colored eyes
  • A large number of moles on the skin
  • Rare inherited cancer syndromes, such as BAP1
  • Excessive exposure to sunlight and UV radiation

Risk factors for squamous cell eye cancer include:

  • Infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
  • Intake of drugs that suppress the immune system
  • Human papillomavirus infection
  • Exposure to sunlight and UV radiation

Risk factors for eye lymphoma include:

  • Age. The risk is higher between the ages of 50 and 60
  • Intake of drugs that prevent organ rejection after a transplant
  • Infection with HIV
  • Bacteria called Chlamydophila Psittaci
  • Autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis
  • A weak or damaged immune system

Since there is a strong link between sunlight and melanomas of the skin, limiting your exposure to intense sunlight, using sunscreen, wearing UV-protected sunglasses, and covering up with protective clothing might reduce the risk of these cancers. For eye cancers triggered by HIV, it is recommended to get vaccinated, limit number of sexual partners, and practice safe sex. It is also best to treat any underlying conditions that may increase your chances of eye cancer.

Detection and Diagnosis

If your GP or optician suspects eye cancer, they will refer you to an ophthalmologist for assessment. Different tests will help determine if you have it, including a dilated eye examination, an ultrasound scan of your eye, a biopsy, and a fluorescein angiogram – where a special camera will be used to take photographs of the presumed cancer.

FAQs

1. Why should I choose alternative treatments for eye cancer?

Our methods are based on years of substantiated medical and scientific research by cancer treatment pioneers. We eliminate cancer cells precisely with minimal side effects, quick recovery, and no harm to healthy tissues — which are the main issues with traditional treatments like chemotherapy.

2. What is the survival rate for eye cancer?

If cancer is confined to the eye, the five-year survival rate is around 80%

3. Can alternative eye cancer treatments restore vision loss?

Holistic treatments can only preserve remaining vision; they cannot improve or restore vision that has already been lost due to eye cancer.
