Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.You are likely asking about lymphedema.This is due to the excessive lymph accumulation causing swelling.Lymphatic channels run parallel to the blood vessels separately.Any obstruction in the lymphatic system due to the infection or tumor or removal of lymph nodes can result in swelling.The treatment is often challenging as diuretics do not usually help.Compression garments, physical therapy to milk out the accumulated lymph are some techniques successfully employed.Best wishes,It was my pleasure to help you today.If I have answered all your questions, Please rate my response Excellent (click on the 5th star).Please bookmark my profile for fast, reliable and authentic answers!This is the link to my profile:http://www.justanswer.com/medical/expert-mysticdoc/
