Sebaceous Carcinoma

Sebaceous (suh-bey-shuhs) carcinoma (SC) also called sebaceous gland carcinoma, sebaceous gland adenocarcinoma or Meibomian gland carcinoma is a rare skin cancer. It is considered aggressive because it can spread. If found early and treated, treatment is often successful.

While most SC begins on the eyelid, this cancer may begin elsewhere in any sebaceous (oil) gland. We have sebaceous glands on most areas of the skin but the greatest number is in and around the eyes/eyelids. Other growths can develop on or around the eyelids and most are benign or innocent. If you notice a growth on your eyelid that remains despite treatment, you should make an appointment to see a dermatologist. The sooner this cancer is diagnosed and treated, the better the outcome. If SC spreads, it can be deadly.
