The treatment of choice for malignant eyelid tumors is surgical excision. If this is not feasible or undesirable, a number of alternative treatments are available. Possible systemic preparations are vismodegib and sonidegib for basal cell carcinoma as well as cetuximab and cemiplimab for squamous cell carcinoma.

An interdisciplinary cooperation with dermatologists is advisable.
