What is Lymphedema?

Lymphedema is an accumulation of fluid in a body part that results from an impaired Lymphatic system. Often Lymphedema is present in the arm or leg but it may also develop in facial tissue, trunk and genital area.  Lymphedema may occur after an infection of the lymphatic system and cancer treatment such as surgery or radiation.
