Some cancer treatments can put a person at risk of lymphedema, which involves a buildup of fluid in the body tissues. It usually affects the arms or legs but may affect any body part.

  • Manual lymph drainage
  • Compression
  • Skin/nail care
  • Exercise

Understanding the early signs of lymphedema and reducing your risk will help you.
