Lymphedema


Welcome

Lymphedema is a chronic health condition with many faces. Some people are born with it; others develop it later in life, often after treatment for some cancers. It is estimated that up to 1 million Canadians suffer with this progressive condition that can have life-long physical, emotional and financial implications for patients and their families. Given this updated national estimate and the population distribution within Canada, it can be extrapolated that near 388,920 Ontarians (children and adults) are living with lymphedema. Up to one in four breast cancer survivors will develop lymphedema at some point in their life.



Become informed. That is the first step you can take to help prevent lymphedema, detect it, get it diagnosed early, and learn how best to manage this condition. We’re working to improve access to quality lymphedema information, resources and services across Ontario and beyond.

Please explore our website for lymphedema information, support and resources.

Thank you for visiting.
