Eye Lid Tumours

Eyelid tumors are a relatively common occurrence among dogs and may also affect other pets as well. The good news is many of these tumors are not cancerous. However, some tumors can be cancerous, which means they can be serious. Fortunately, you can take your pet to our animal hospital to see our veterinarian. If necessary, surgery can be performed to remove the tumors, or our vet can suggest other treatment options. If you live in or near Brooklyn, NY, schedule an appointment with us at Clinton Hill Animal Clinic. We’d be happy to look over your pet.

A Look at Eyelid Tumors

Vision is very important for dogs, and the eyes are immensely complex. Yet, like any other system in the body, the eyes and eyelids can be a source of health problems. Unfortunately, tumors are a potentially serious problem.

A tumor occurs when cells divide in a rapid and uncontrolled manner. A benign tumor stays localized and typically grows very slowly. They usually are not problematic. With cancer, the tumors often grow rapidly, and cancerous cells can spread. If the cancer should spread, it can greatly increase the risk of death and other serious complications.

Fortunately, among dogs, eyelid tumors are typically benign. They can still cause problems, including discomfort. However, they often will not pose a risk as far as cancer is concerned.

That said, some eyelid tumors can be malign, so it can be important to have a veterinarian check them over. Even if the growths are not cancerous, surgery may still be recommended. Our vet on our veterinary team can talk over other treatment options as well.

What Our Veterinarian Will Look for When Examining an Eyelid Tumor

When taking a look at your pet’s tumor, we might look at the following:

  • - The size of the mass
  • - The exact location
  • - Whether the pet can blink
  • - Any signs of infection or irritation
  • - Evidence of the tumor is spreading

Our veterinarian might have some questions as well. To better protect your pet’s health, we recommend routine pet wellness exams so that we can catch any diseases and health conditions early so that your pet can get treatment.
