What is Lymphedema?
Lymphedema is the accumulation of excessive fluid in the body in particular your arms or legs, usually as a result of some cancers, (notably breast cancer) and their treatment. Lymphedema occurs when there is more fluid in your lymphatic system than can be moved naturally. This excess fluid collects in affected arm or leg tissues. Left untreated, this protein-rich liquid causes your lymphatic system’s channels to grow larger. It also reduces the flow of oxygen to tissues, which affects the healing of wounds and may lead to infection. Lymphedema can affect both men and women.
