What treatments are available?
The aim of treatment for lymphoedema is to encourage lymph fluid to move away from the tissues by making the lymph vessels work harder. The way this is done will vary depending on how severe your lymphoedema is but your treatment will include some, or all, of the following approaches at different times. You can do quite a lot of these things yourself alongside any professional treatment you are having.

Lymphodema is swelling caused by a build-up of lymph fluid in the surface tissues of the body. Following treatment for breast cancer this lymph fluid build-up may occur as a result of damage to the lymphatic system because of surgery and/or radiotherapy to the lymph nodes in the armpit (axilla) and surrounding area. Sometimes it can be due to cancer cells in the lymph system.
