Managing lymphedema

The best way to manage lymphedema is with thoughtful skin care and moderate exercise. There is a small chance that severe overuse could cause or worsen lymphedema. If you experience arm swelling or increased pain after a particular activity, stop the activity until discussing it with your doctor or physical therapist.
