Cancer eye (ocular squamous cell carcinoma) is the most common form of cancer in cattle. It is a skin cancer occurring on the eye and eyelids.
Estimates of its prevalence vary from 1% to 20% in some herds. Some of the predisposing factors are heritable, and in certain lines or families nearly all cattle may be affected during their lifetime.
