Conjunctival tumour excision

Discrete tumour nodules on the surface of the eyeball can be removed surgically, if not too extensive. This can be done under local or general anaesthesia.

 

Some surgeons administer radiotherapy after tumour excision, to reduce the chances of local tumour recurrence from invasive disease.

 

If there is diffuse surface disease, then adjunctive topical chemotherapy may be required.
