Lymphedema Management

Lymphedema is a serious complication for many cancer survivors. It causes swelling, usually in an arm or leg, and sometimes in the nearby trunk quadrant.

Risk of lymphedema

Anyone who has undergone lymph node dissection and/or radiation in the axillary, groin or neck region is at risk of developing lymphedema. Virginia Mason Franciscan Health provides specialized therapy that helps treat lymphedema in the arms.
