    Lymphedema (LE) is a chronic disease that affects millions, yet it remains under-recognized and often misdiagnosed. Early identification and intervention can improve lymphatic function, slow, reverse or halt the progression of lymphedema and reduce its physical, mental and economic burdens to both individuals and society.
