Hello Sabilms,


Caruncula or often called lacrimal caruncle is part of the middle corner of the eye shaped like a triangular area that is normally pink. Carunkula part consists of skin tissue, sweat glands and sebaceous glands. There are various brown lesions that can form on the caruncula, partly because:


Nevus - mole. Because caruncules are formed from skin tissue, moles can also form due to a buildup of melanocyte cells (producing skin pigment)
Primary acquired melanosis - can be a precursor to melanoma

Melanoma - malignancy / cancer, dark brown or reddish brown, appear elevated, there are small blood vessels that form around it
Basal cell carcinoma (rare)

If there is pigmentation in the carunkel that is new (acute), it should be checked by an ophthalmologist. It is better to check in order to make sure the lesion in the carunkel is not a malignancy (melanoma) and metastasis has not yet occurred (spread to other body parts).


A direct examination is needed by the doctor to then determine the right course of action for the carunkel lesion. If melanoma is suspected, the action taken is extensive excision (removing abnormal tissue, along with a portion of the surrounding normal tissue) and then a biopsy is performed. Biopsy incision (only taking a small tumor and then examined) is usually avoided in the case of melanoma because it will actually trigger the spread of tumors and the wound results of surgery are usually not good or scar tissue is formed. Please consult further with your ophthalmologist regarding this complaint. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
