What is the lymphatic system

It is a one-way drainage system. Its functions are defense – by supporting the immune system and transportation-clearing fluid and particulate waste matter through the body.

What is lymphoedema.

It is a chronic condition which causes body tissue to gradually swell with fluid as a result of blocked or damaged drainage channels and glands or due to the absence of lymph tissue following surgery. Lymphoedema can affect all areas of the body though most commonly noticed in the arms and legs.
