Lymphedema also known as lymphatic obstruction, is a situation of localized fluid retention and tissue swelling occured by a compromised lymphatic system, which generaly returns interstitial fluid to the thoracic duct and then the bloodstream. The situation can be inherited, though it is often occurs by cancer treatments, and by parasitic infections. Though incurable and progressive, a number of treatments can ameliorate symptoms. Tissues with lymphedema are at risk of infection.
