Lymphoedema is one of the most misunderstood and neglected conditions in healthcare today. According to a recent study, over 200,000 people in the UK may be living with it, often following being treated for cancer – it affects approximately one in five women after breast cancer treatment.
Lymphoedema affects the lymphatic system, causing swelling and the fluid retention; it can also cause aching, heaviness and difficulty moving. There is no cure for lymphoedema, but there are ways to control the main symptoms.
