Lymphedema Clinic

first Wednesday of the month
Time: Noon to 1 p.m.
Location: Ambulatory Care Center, Room 2012.
This class can help you reduce your chances of develop-ing lymphedema. Both surgery and radiation treatment on or near the lymphatic areas (armpits) contribute to risk of developing lym-phatic obstruction. Lymphatic obstruction is a blockage of the lymph vessels that drain fluid from tissues throughout the body and allow immune cells to travel where they are needed. Lymphatic obstruction may cause lymphedema, which means swelling due to a blockage of the lymph passages.
