Lymphedema

What is lymphedema?

Lymphedema is an abnormal accumulation of lymphatic fluid in areas of the arms, legs, hands, or feet. It can be caused by insufficient drainage of the lymphatic system, which filters bacteria and viruses from the body. While there is no cure for lymphedema treatment can help by reducing swelling and controlling the pain.
