About Gynecologic Cancer and Lymphedema

Lymphedema is when fluid (lymph) collects anywhere in your body and causes swelling (edema). Lymphedema can be a long-term side effect of some treatments for gynecologic cancers. It is not preventable but there are treatment options available. You should contact your care provider if you notice any new swelling, weight gain, or if your clothes or shoes are feeling tighter than usual.
