Lymphedema is an excessive accumulation of lymph — a fluid that originates in the spaces between body cells. It shows itself as a visable and palpable swelling of a body part — usually an arm or leg — and occurs when blocked, damaged, or missing lymphatic vessels fail to adequately move fluid and protein resulting in an accumulation of fluids in the affected area.
