Ciliary Body Melanoma (Intraocular Melanoma) Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy Ciliary body melanoma (aka Intraocular Melanoma) is an eye cancer in which the malignant cells arise in the part of the eye called the uvea. The uvea includes the iris (the colored part of the eye), the ciliary body (a muscle in the eye), and the choroid (a layer of tissue in the back of the eye). The uvea contains pigment-producing cells called melanocytes. When these cells become cancerous, the cancer is called a melanoma. Intraocular melanoma occurs most often in people who are middle aged.
