Lymphedema Management

Lymphedema is an abnormal accumulation of protein rich fluid in a body part. Most often it affects the arms and legs, but can also affect the face, neck or genitals. Primary Lymphedema can be present at birth, or can develop later in life without a cause. Secondary Lymphedema can be caused by cancer, surgery, radiation, trauma, injury or infection. The most common cause for Lymphedema in the United States is breast cancer. Lymphedema affects an estimated 2.5 million Americans. A chronic condition, Lymphedema can be managed with compression garments and through a manual lymph drainage massage.
