Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Does this growth have kinda rolled edges with a central crater?
Hi, i'm not certain what you mean y a crater. It looks like a pimle with a white head. It is very soft et not red and does not hurt on touch.
Here are some pictures. Does your lesion look like any of these?
that link also has areas you can click on to show other lesions on the eyelids.....
Sorry I am unable to open the link.
In any event, to answer your question almost any ophthalmologist can remove the growth on your eyelid.
Sorry about that.....not sure why you can't open it. In any event it really doesn't matter for our purposes...
Ok what next.
Many times it can be done in the office. If the lesion is large, or requires complex repair of the resulting lid defect once the lesion is removed, then it would be done in the OR>
I wouldn't let a GP remove a lesion that close to your eye although some plastic surgeons are comfortable working on lids.
Does that make sense to you?
Also, the lesion should be submitted to pathology for review to make sure there is no evidence of cancer in the growth.....another good reason for the folks at the spa to not want to mess with it :)
Ok! So in other words I should make an appointment with a plastic surgeon?
Yes, although my first choice would be with an ophthalmologist as they are the most experienced surgeon when it comes to the eye and surrounding structure.
Is there anything else you would like to ask me?
