Webinar: Understanding Lymphoedema

Lymphoedema is swelling (oedema) that occurs when lymph fluid builds up in the tissues under the skin. It may be ongoing, but it can usually be managed, particularly if diagnosed early. Lymphoedema can affect people at any stage: during active cancer treatment, or even months or years after treatment. We will be discussing how you can prevent and/or manage Lymphoedema.
