Diagnosing Meibomian Gland Tumours

Accurate diagnosis is crucial for effective treatment:

  • Detailed Eye Examination: A thorough examination of the eyelids and eyes to assess any masses or growths.
  • Biopsy: In some cases, a biopsy may be recommended to determine the nature of the tumour and guide treatment decisions.

Treatment Options

Treatment for Meibomian gland tumours typically involves surgical intervention:

  • Surgical Removal: The primary treatment is the complete surgical removal of the tumour. This procedure is typically straightforward and can often be done under local anesthesia.
  • Histopathological Examination: After removal, the tumour is sent for histopathological examination to determine if it is benign or malignant and to ensure complete removal.


The cost of treatment for Meibomian gland tumours varies depending on the surgery’s complexity and any additional diagnostic procedures. We will provide a comprehensive cost estimate after the initial examination.
