Cancer Detection: Monitoring Your Eyes (39)

Monitoring your body regularly can help spot cancer early and save your life

Knowing the signs & symptoms is half the battle! It is important that you monitor your body to detect any red flags for early cancer detection.

Frequency:

Monthly or daily if signs or symptoms are noticed.

Preparation:

  • Know the eye signs and symptoms for early cancer detection.
  • Know what your eyeball and eyelids typically look and feel like
  • Mirror
  • Lit area

Examination:

  • Look at each eyeball in the mirror in the same environment each time.
  • Close one eyelid at a time. Use your index finger pressing lightly in a circular motion over the entire eyelid to feel for any lumps or growth.
  • Open both eyes wide in bright light and compare structural or color differences in the eyeball portion of the eye and pupils.

Notice Something? Here’s What To Do Next:

  • Monitoring your eyes is difficult. Therefore, at least once a year your eyes should be checked by an ophthalmologist for early detection of cancer.
  • Anytime you see a sign or difference between the two eyes consider it a “red flag”. It does not mean you have cancer. If it does not correct itself in one week, contact your ophthalmologist for a professional evaluation.
