Edema

LYMPHOEDEMA (LYMPHEDEMA)

It is extremely important for the regular functioning of our immune system. Blockage in these paths can lead to lymphatic congestion (build-up of fluid). This condition is often referred to as Lymphoedema. 

LYMPHEDEMA IN ARM AFTER BREAST CANCER

In small cases of breast cancer surgery (Mastectomy), the lymphatic system may be damaged. Swelling of the arms and hands occurs as a direct result of lymphatic injury.

LIPOEDEMA ALSO KNOWN AS LIPEDEMA

Lipoedema or lipedema is the condition which results in the uneven deposition of fat under the skin. A patient suffering from Lipoedema usually has disproportionate lower bodies, typically large thighs despite a healthy diet and regular exercise.

ELEPHANTIASIS - Oedema

A patient suffering from this congestion can have excess fluid build-up affect the legs in particular. When this builds up to a severe point, the patient can often develop the disease Elephantiasis, where the swelling becomes quite severe and asymmetrical in the lower legs.
