Lymphedema Reduction & Management Program

Lymphedema is an abnormal accumulation of high protein fluid in an area of the body. It is caused by an impairment in the function of lymph vessels and/or lymph nodes. Characteristics of lymphedema include swelling, changes in skin and tissue texture, and vulnerability to infection.

You may be at risk for lymphedema if you have had:

  • Cancer treatment that involved surgical removal of lymph nodes and/or radiation
  • Any surgery that cut through major lymph vessels
  • Family members with a history of swelling
  • Long-standing problems with your veins
  • Injuries resulting in long-lasting swelling
  • Repeated skin infections
