What is a mass of cells in the eye? At my last eye exam the doctor told me there is a small clump of cells in my eye that is probably harmless. He said these clumps are not uncommon and are rarely malignant. He said I should have my eyes examined yearly to monitor this clump's activity. Should I be worried?
I am very sorry that I cannot characterize and thus comment on "a clump of cells." I suggest you contact your ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.) and ask him/her for additional information about your condition as the term "clump of cells" is not sufficient for your needs.
