Lymphedema: An overview

When the lymphatic system is disturbed it can no longer take up sufficient lymph fluid. The fluid accumulates in the tissues. The result: a visible and palpable swelling. Doctors call this lymphedema.

Disturbances of the lymphatic system can be primary (congenital, praecox or tarda) or secondary (operations such as due to cancer, radio therapy, infections, or injury).

Lymphedema can occur locally or over the whole body (generalized lymphedema).

Lymphedema is a chronic disorder.
