Precautions for lymphedema patients

Lymphoedema of the arm frequently occurs in the wake of treatment for breast cancer. Lymph nodes are removed in the course of surgery and/or radiotherapy, resulting in damage to the lymphatic system.

Special recommendations have been defined for cancer patients in aftercare, which are intended to help avoid or at least delay the development of arm lymphedema.
