Welcome to the Lymphoedema Support Network website. If you have developed lymphoedema, you are not alone; recent research suggests that lymphoedema affects at least 240,000 men, women and children in the UK. Although lymphoedema is a long term condition, with the right information, support and treatment there is much that can be done to improve both swelling and other symptoms.
The LSN is a registered charity run by people who live with lymphoedema and is the largest information provider about the condition in the UK. This website forms part of our work and contains information for patients about the condition and the experience of living with lymphoedema as well as information for health care professionals looking to support patients with lymphoedema. Should you not find what you are looking for here then please do not hesitate to contact us.
