Lymphedema, a sometimes painful condition results in a persistent swelling which can occur in the arm, leg, the trunk, or any other body part. In the U.S., it most commonly is due to a blockage in your lymphatic system as a result of cancer treatment such a a mastectomy, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Left untreated, lymphedema can progress from a resolvable temporary condition to a permanent and irreversible condition.
