Hi,

I am Dr. Adhishwar Sharma, Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon. Today I will talk about lymphedema. It is a fluid which is collected in the body after arteries supply the blood and vein take away the deoxygenated blood. Lymph is the fluid which is collected by the body. It plays an important role in immunity and the body. It helps in fighting infections, cancer and other things.

The primary cause of lymphedema is genetics, congenital infantile. Various cancer treatments spread lymph nodes. They remove lymphatic vessels which gives rise to lymphedema. So, the treatment for lymphedema is congested & decongested therapy, pressure garments.

For any help or query, you can contact me through Lybrate.

Thank You.
