This book provides all the necessary knowledge and the skills required to identify risk factors for the development of the disease and to equip the health care professional in providing the best advice to the patient.

As well as examining the physical signs and symptoms of lymphoedema, the book explores the different types of lymphoedema and reasons for its development.
