Tumors

Primary benign conjunctival tumors (nevi, dermoids, lymphangiomas, hemangiomas, lipomas, and fibromas) occur frequently, as do tumor-like inflammatory changes (viral papillomas, granulomas such as suture granulomas after surgery to correct strabismus, cysts, and lymphoid hyperplasia). Malignant conjunctival tumors (carcinomas in situ, carcinomas, Kaposi's sarcomas, lymphomas, and primary acquired melanosis) are rare. Benign lesions may become malignant; for example, a nevus or acquired melanosis may develop into a malignant melanoma. This section presents only the most important tumors.
