It may occur after mastectomy, when lymph nodes are damaged or removed, following infection or scar formation which blocks the lymphatic fluid flow.
Lymphedema may occur weeks, months or years after the initial injury, trauma or surgery.
Postural and therapeutic exercise, massage, custom-made compression bandaging and compression garments are among the treatment choices.
