CentraState’s Lymphedema Treatment Center offers focused and effective care for patients experiencing the condition. Lymphedema is when excess fluid collects in tissue and causes swelling. It usually happens in the arms or legs after lymph vessels or lymph nodes in the underarm or groin are surgically removed or treated with radiation. Sometimes other parts of the body are affected. Mainly people who have undergone cancer treatment may experience lymphedema.
