Also known as: eye tumors, orbital tumors
Ocular tumors are any type of tumor that impacts the eyeball or the surrounding area. They can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous).
Many ocular tumors are hereditary and can be passed down from parents to children. Others are the result of another medical condition or occur for unknown reasons.
Symptoms can range widely based on the nature and severity of the tumor. Some don’t cause many symptoms beyond the tumor itself, while others can negatively impact vision, eye movement or other basic functions of the eye.
Treatments for ocular tumors can range from surgery to radiation therapy to laser or freezing techniques.
