Lymphedema and the nurse practitioner.

Abstract

Lymphedema is not uncommon after breast cancer surgery or radiation therapy and can appear days or even years after the causative event. Unfortunately, it is often missed by health care professionals, and patients suffer needlessly. The author discusses the nurse practitioner's role in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of this debilitating disorder.
