Lymphedema Risk Factors After Sentinel Lymph Biopsy - Maria Lopez-Carale

Uploaded by drjayharness on 28.12.2011

>>>Maria Lopez-Carale: As far as sentinel lymph node biopsy patients, their risk of
developing lymphedema is smaller but you have to take into consideration whether or not
you receive radiation especially to the supraclavicular region up here or the axilla and armpit. If
that is the case, then your lymphedema risk may increase slightly and if you are obese,
then you have to take that into consideration also.
