Lymphoedema Head and Neck Cancer

I support the finding that head and neck cancer post-treatment lymphoedema needs to be managed.  See the brief write-up here. Swelling or surgery may likely affect the TMJ (jaw), neck and shoulder range, breathing comfort, etc. See a ‘specialist’ therapist for initial evaluation.
