Lymphedema Overview and Facts

Lymphedema means swelling of the lymph passages. Lymphedema, also called Lymphatic obstruction, is a chronic disease involving blockage of the lymph nodes.  Lymph nodes vessels drain fluid from tissues throughout the body and allow immune cells to travel where they are needed.

Lymphedema is characterized by persistent and often chronic swelling, usually of a person’s arm or leg. 

Lymphedema is a chronic disease that usually requires lifelong management. In some cases, lymphedema improves with time. However, some swelling is usually permanent.
