Pterygium

Description :

The pterygium is a benign, non cancerous, wing shaped (“petyrigion” is the ancient Greek word for “wing”) tumour of the conjunctiva (which is the superficial membrane that covers the surface of the eye). 

It is a very frequent tumour, particularly in adults living in hot and sunny areas as it is the case in south of Tenerife.
