More than 1.5 million people in the US will be diagnosed with cancer this year. Many many millions more are living with cancer treatment histories, and these are the people that this class is about.

 

Lymphedema is a costly, uncomfortable, and disfiguring long-term side effect of many cancer treatments that affects many survivors.

 

It can develop during, immediately after, or even decades after cancer treatment is complete, and can be triggered by incorrectly provided massage applications. Once triggered, lymphedema is not reversible and can at best be managed.

 

Common with breast cancer treatment lymphedema also occurs as a result medical treatment unrelated to cancer, as well as the treatment of other cancers such as ovarian, prostate, and head, neck and thyroid cancer.
