What is Lymphedema?
Your lymphatic system is crucial to keeping your body healthy. It circulates lymph fluid throughout your body, collecting bacteria, viruses and waste products. Your lymphatic system carries this fluid, as well as the harmful substances, through your lymph vessels and into your lymph nodes. The wastes are then filtered out and ultimately flushed from your body.
Lymphedema occurs when your lymph vessels and nodes are unable to adequately drain lymph fluid, usually from an arm or leg.
Lymphedema can be either primary (hereditary) or secondary (from outside factors).
How does a person get lymphedema?
- Cancer– any cancer whereby cancer cells block the lymphatic vessels can cause lymphedema. Most common causes; breast cancer, melanoma, cervical or vulval cancer, and prostate cancer.
- Damage to Lymph nodes and Lymph vessels– Caused by surgery, trauma, radiation, burns, tumors, and accidental injury.
- Venous Diseases-include certain cardiac conditions and affect blood flow and damage veins, causing Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI); CVI, Venous Stasis Ulcers, DVT (blood clot) and Varicose Veins are venous diseases that can lead to Lymphedema.
- Infection– Lymph nodes can be damaged by an infection (cellulitis) or by a parasite.
- Inflammation caused by rheumatoid arthritis and eczema may damage lymph nodes.
- Immobility-due to stationary lifestyle, prolonged illness, lengthy plane/car trips and paralysis and Obesity, due to blocked lymphatic channels.
Lymphedema is most commonly caused by the removal of or damage to your lymph nodes as a part of cancer treatment. It results from a blockage in your lymphatic system, which is part of your immune system. The blockage prevents lymph fluid from draining well, and the fluid buildup leads to swelling. While there is presently no cure for lymphedema, it can be managed with early diagnosis and diligent care of your affected limb. Source: Mayoclinic.
