Ocular melanoma includes two types of cancers; uveal melanoma (that can appear in the choroid, ciliary body or iris) and conjunctival melanoma.
Ocular melanoma does not have the same biology as cutaneous melanoma. It spreads and reacts very differently and therefore it is important that those working with ocular melanoma patients are aware what the appropriate treatments are for this rare cancer.
