Lymphoedema after breast surgery. Close-up of the left hand of a female patient with swelling indicating the presence of lymphoedema. Lymphoedema is an accumulation of lymph fluid in the tissues that occurs when lymphatic vessels are blocked, removed or damaged. In this case it is a result of breast cancer surgery. The brown areas on the back of the hand are liver spots (senile lentigos), also known as age spots.
