Understanding lymphoedema following breast cancer treatment

Recorded Thursday, 28 March 2019

Lymphoedema after breast cancer is caused by damage to or removal of lymph nodes from the armpit or breast area. It may be ongoing, but it can usually be managed, particularly if diagnosed early. Lymphoedema can affect people during active breast cancer treatment, or even months or years after active treatment has finished.

This is the first in the series of two webcasts about understanding lymphoedema, signs and symptoms, treatment and prevention. Hear from leading experts, as well as a woman living with lymphoedema.
