Lymphedema Symptoms and Types

There are many causes for this condition.  Some of the most common include infections with parasites such as filariasis, injury or trauma to the area, past radiation therapy and surgeries, tumors and cellulitis.  One of the most common causes of lymphedema is removal of the breast (mastectomy) and underarm lymph tissue for breast cancer.  In a few cases the condition is present from birth (congenital).
