Lymphedema is swelling caused by fluid that collects in tissue under the skin. This presentation will include an overview of breast cancer-related lymphedema and how it is treated. We will also discuss the Lymphedema Screening Program at Mass General and our current LymphVAX project related to COVID-19 vaccination after breast cancer treatment.
