What is Lymphedema and how can we help you?
This is a condition of localized swelling that is caused by a lymphatic system that has been compromised. The lymphatic system is a critical position of the body’s immune system and gives the bloodstream interstitial fluid.
Causes and Risk Factors
Lymphedema is most commonly a complication of parasitic infection or cancer treatment, but several general disorders can cause it. Any skin that has lymphedema has a high risk of infection due the compromisation of the lymphatic system.
