Rodent Ulcers and Eyelid Cancers

The most common eyelid cancer is a Basal Cell Carcinoma also known as a Rodent Ulcer. A clinical examination is often enough to diagnose this but we like to perform a small biopsy to confirm the diagnosis as it is such an important diagnosis for the patient. Rodent ulcers on the eyelids need to be surgically removed and the reconstruction techniques vary widely depending on the location and size of the rodent ulcer.

Once the diagnosis has been reached, all the various options are discussed with the patient in detail. These include a one-stage surgery, multi-stage surgery (excision with delayed reconstruction) and Moh’s micrographic surgery (which is performed in conjunction with another Moh’s surgeon).
