"Approximately 15 to 50% of women will develop
lymphedema after breast cancer treatment"
…Casley-Smith 1997

In order to evaluate for possible lymphedema after surgery, radiation or chemotherapy, it is desirable to have baseline volumes calculated for both arms. Under a newly established program, Delmar Physical Therapy and Lymphedema Treatment Center will provide, at no charge, limb volume measurements for any pre treatment breast cancer patient. The data collected, in table and graph format, will also be forwarded to the appropriate physician.
Early diagnosis of lymphedema means easier management of the condition by the patient. It is hoped that this program will significantly increase the early detection rate by providing the patient and physician with relevant data.
