Lymphedema

Lymphatic SystemThe lymphatic system is made up of the body’s fluids, the vessels below the skin and the nodes in the neck, armpits and groin.  It is where most of the body’s defense against disease and infection is located.  It is very important to the circulation of fluids in the body.    Lymphedema occurs when there is malformation or damage to this system.  It can be present at birth or develop later but may also occur secondary to surgical procedures, infection, or other traumatic injury.  The swelling occurs most often in arms or legs but it can also affect the face, neck, abdomen or genitals.

The Lymphedema Association of Ontario‘s website can give you more information regarding the condition.
