This book presents a comprehensive analysis of lymphedema, its pathogenesis, progression and treatment. Lymphedema is described as a swelling caused by the abnormal accumulation of lymphatic fluid in the skin. It can be caused by surgery, burns, radiation therapy, injury or cancer treatment that cancer survivors undergo. Risk of developing this disorder is great in those patients with prostate or breast cancer. It is hereditary and can occur without warning at any time of life and is associated with circulatory problems and obesity. This disorder can be extremely painful if not treated, and can lead to life-threatening infections. The aim of this book is to assist physicians who deal with lymphedema and help the readers to comprehend the working of lymphatic system, its diagnosis and treatment. This book is intended for those with, or at risk of, getting affected by lymphedema, and the healthcare professionals who treat them.
