Welcome to Jacksonville Lymphedema Clinic.
What is Lymphedema? Lymphedema (LE) (lymph= lymph fluid; edema = swelling) is an abnormal swelling of a body part, most often an extremity, but it can occur in the face, neck, or abdomen. The swelling is the result of an accumulation of protein-rich lymph fluid in the affected area. This occurs when the lymphatic system which transports waste material (proteins, inorganic substances, water, fats, dead or damaged cells) is absent, underdeveloped or impaired in some way.
