Managing Your Lymphedema Symptoms

When your lymphatic system is overwhelmed, damaged, or blocked, you may experience chronic swelling known as lymphedema. It’s a permanent condition that worsens over time if it isn’t properly treated.

Chronic venous insufficiency may be the most important predictor of lymphedema in the legs.

What Causes Lymphedema?

While it’s possible to have lymphedema at birth, it’s more common for it to develop in response to disease, cancer treatment, and other factors.

Treatments for Cancer

Chemo and radiation treatments are the leading cause of lymphedema.

Lymphatic System Issues

If the lymphatic system is blocked and can’t drain, the lymph fluid backs up and causes swelling.

Underlying vein disease

Symptoms of varicose veins can overlap with symptoms of lymphedema.

Additional Risk Factors

Certain factors can increase your likelihood of developing lymphedema. These include:

  • Older age
  • Obesity or excess weight
  • Rheumatoid or Psoriatic Arthritis
  • Surgery that removed lymph nodes
  • Damage to the lymphatic system
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Kidney disease
  • Blood vessel issues
