Lymphedema is a condition that results from impaired flow of the lymphatic system. It can cause pain, a feeling of pressure or heaviness, and skin problems in the affected area, often in the arm or leg. Secondary lymphedema develops as a result of damage or dysfunction of the lymphatic system, one of the possible sid effects of breast cancer treatments.
