Lymphedema is a visible and palpable swelling of a body part, usually an arm or a leg. The protein rich fluid, called lymph, gets stuck in the tissue spaces when lymphatic vessels are absent, underdeveloped, or blocked. Damage to the lymphatic vessels can be caused by trauma, reconstructive surgeries, infection, radiation, and/or disease.
