Little Boy Got Eye Removed Because of Cancer
A father shared an inspiring picture of his young son after he got his eyes removed on Tuesday, 23rd July, due to cancer of the eye.
Cancer of the eye, also called “intraocular cancer” is uncommon. It can affect the outer parts of the eye, such as the eyelid, which are made up of muscles, skin and nerves. In adults, the most common intraocular cancers are melanoma and lymphoma while in children, retinoblastoma is the most common type of eye cancer. It starts in the cells of the retina.
In the picture, the little boy can be seen playing with his toy, while smiling for the camera.
Treatment for eye cancer varies by the type and by how advanced it is. It may include surgery, radiation therapy, freezing or heat therapy, or laser therapy.
Eye cancers are best treated at the early stage.
