This booklet is for anyone who has developed lymphoedema after treatment for breast cancer. It explains what lymphoedema is, the symptoms you may have and how it can be managed. It also features the experiences of people living with the condition. Last reviewed April 2019; next review 2021.
Breast Cancer Care merged with Breast Cancer Now in April 2019. From October 2019 the new merged charity is called Breast Cancer Now.
However, lots of our patient information will continue to appear under the legacy brand Breast Cancer Care until new editions are produced. Please be assured that, whether the information you order or download is branded as Breast Cancer Care or Breast Cancer Now, the quality remains the same.
