For people with lymphedema, unusual swelling, and other edemas
What is Lymphedema?
Lymphedema is a condition that involves buildup of fluid in the body and can cause abnormal swelling. Lymphedema is not a life-threatening condition, although it can be life-altering and can significantly lessen quality of life.
Primary Lymphedema affects those with a birth defect of congenital nature involving the lymphatic system. Secondary Lymphedema affects people with many different medical issues, including cancer treatments, severe injuries of any kind, recent surgeries, as well as many others. Be aware that lymphedema can happen to anyone: infants, children, adults, men, and women.
