LYMPHEDEMA (LYMPHATIC OBSTRUCTION) :- Lymphatic obstruction or Lymphedema is typically a blockage of the lymph vessels that drain fluid from tissues throughout the body and allow immune cells to travel where they are needed. Lymphatic obstruction may cause lymphedema, which means swelling due to a blockage of the lymph passages.
