Thank you for your question. In your case I would ask your primary care doctor for a referral to biopsy the lesion. Then you can make a good decision what to do. Don't be afraid to go forward..Dr Thomas Narsete Austin, Tx
If it is truly a new lesion on your eyelid that is concerning for skin cancer, it should be biopsied. This is done rather easily without worry for further scarring. You should recognize that reconstructive surgery is a medically necessary surgery. Surgeons do their best to make the incisions as cosmetically acceptable as possible, but it may not be possible to have the results be perfectly unnoticeable.
I would urge you to find an oculoplastics surgeon close to you that is experienced in reconstructive surgery.
