Lymphedema is when excess lymphatic fluid causes swelling in the body, usually in the arms or legs. This is usually a result of cancer and its treatments (surgery, radiation, etc.), with a higher risk of Lymphedema for breast cancer patients.
Early diagnosis and treatment is key to managing these symptoms and preventing the swelling from progressing. If left untreated, Lymphedema could lead to decreased function and mobility in the affected areas.
Lymphedema Treatment and management can vary from person to person and can vary greatly due to the progression, symptoms and how early treatment begins.
