Lymphedema is a chronic condition in which the lymphatic system does not work properly. It can lead to oedema (swelling) in the peripheries (arms and legs). It can be caused by the faulty development of the lymphatic system (primary lymphedema) or by damage to the lymphatic system due to injury, infection, lack of movement or cancer treatment (secondary).

Specialist assessment and treatment for lymphedema are carried out by a physiotherapist. This will involve asking about your symptoms and taking a full history. It may also involve taking measurements of the affected limb to establish if it is enlarged.

There is no cure for the condition, but it can be managed effectively with a combination of:

  • Bandages and garments
  • Specialised massage
  • Exercise
  • Skin care
