Many times, eye cancer does not have symptoms in the early stages. When it does have signs, they vary from person to person.
Common eye cancer symptoms may include:
- Vision changes. These can include a loss of vision, blurry vision, double vision, flashing lights or floaters (an object in the field of vision).
- Leukocoria, a white reflection in the pupil of the eye
- A pigmented (dark) area on the conjunctiva
- A small, firm, raised lump with a lesion in the center on the eyelid
- Ulceration of the eyelid
- Loss of eyelashes
- Brown or pigmented lesion on the eyelid
- A sty that does not heal
- Growing dark spot on the iris
- Change in pupil shape or size
- Change of eyeball position or the way eye moves
- Bulging of eye
- Orbital or ocular pain
- Excessive tearing, bloody tears
These symptoms do not always mean you have eye cancer. However, it is important to discuss any eye cancer symptoms with your doctor, since they may signal other health problems.
