Intraocular melanoma

Intraocular melanoma is the most common type of cancer that develops within the eyeball in adults, but it is still fairly rare. Melanomas of the skin are much more common than intraocular melanomas. Melanomas develop from pigment-making cells called melanocytes. When melanoma develops in the eye, it is usually in the uvea, which is why these cancers are also called uveal melanomas. About 9 out of 10 intraocular melanomas develop in the choroid or ciliary body (which are parts of the uvea). Choroid cells make the same kind of pigment as melanocytes in the skin, so it’s not surprising that these cells sometimes form melanomas.
