Lymphoedema is a chronic condition that causes tissue swelling. Usually, the lymphatic system of the body is able to deal with the drainage of lymph fluid. However, any damage or removal of the lymph nodes from the lymphatic system can lead lymphoedema. Most commonly it will affect the extremities of the body such as the arm and legs but this can occur anywhere in the body.

Common Causes

  • Faulty genes can affect the development of the lymphatic system
  • Infection
  • Lack of limb movement
  • Cancer treatment
