Lymphedema frequently occurs in the treatment of any cancer that involves surgery for lymph node removal and/or radiation therapy. Other causes of lymphedema are trauma, infection, immobility and chronic venous insufficiencies. Brookwood Baptist Health also offers Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT), which is a multi-faceted treatment that consists of manual lymph drainage, compression therapy, exercise, skincare and self-management education.
