What is Lymphedema “LE”?

Lymphedema “LE” is a disease that results in debilitating, progressive, and disfiguring swelling. It can occur when the lymphatic system is damaged and the flow of lymph fluid in the body is compromised. Cancer treatment, radiation, surgery, or traumatic injury can all lead to LE in one’s limbs or other parts of the body.

Few Americans know it by name. Even fewer can spell it. It affects more Americans than AIDS, Parkinson’s, MS, Muscular Dystrophy, and ALS combined. Lymphedema is a chronic disease of the lymphatic system that can cause a lifetime of swelling. An estimated 10 million Americans live with Lymphedema.
