Lymphedema is a chronic condition that a person can be born with but can also occur when lymph vessels are damaged or removed as a result of surgery, cancer treatments or severe injury. It may also develop in cases of recurring infections, venous insufficiency or filariasis. There is no cure for lymphedema, however, it can be successfully managed if diagnosed and treated in a timely way. Managing lymphedema involves diligent care of the affected body part.

About LAM:

LAM strives to raise awareness and educate the public and health care professionals on the issues and the needs of those affected with lymphedema while empowering affected individuals and their families to manage this condition.
