Uveal Melanoma Patient Guidelines
Uveal melanoma is a cancer of the eye involving the iris, ciliary body or choroid (known as the uvea).
Tumours arise from the pigment cells in the eye called melanocytes. This is the same as melanoma skin cancer, but uveal melanoma is different and is treated differently.
