Lymphedema treatment for head and neck

The development of lymphedema in the head and neck is common after undergoing surgery or radiation treatment.  The indications of lymphedema may occur weeks after a procedure or can trigger years after the initial treatment. Early symptoms include:

  • Tightness in the face, head or neck
  • Difficulties breathing, eating or swallowing
  • Reduced range of motion in head and neck
  • Swelling and/ or discomfort in the face, head or neck

The treatment of lymphedema in the head and neck can depend on the stage or severity level of the patient’s condition. Treatments can include manual lymph drainage, garments, self-care, and use of pneumatic compression devices.
