Spreading Lymphedema

Term generally used by patients to describe the process wherein lymphedema expands from one area to another. For example, if the lymphedema started in the arms and then “moves” into the abdomen. Lymphedema can expand to other body areas through further damage to the lymph system and due to numerous medical conditions.
