Experimental Surgery May Cure Complication of Breast Cancer Treatment

Posted on February 15, 2016 by Disability Help Group

In a report from the New York Times, an experimental surgery may cure a serious complication of breast cancer treatment, lymphedema. This side effect results in a loss of lymph nodes which causes soreness and chronic swelling. It is also believed to cause cancer to spread. Determining qualification for Social Security disability benefits can be made quicker with the help of a Hallendale social security disability associate.

The experimental surgery, autologous vascularized lymph node transfer, entails harvesting lymph nodes from another area in the patients’ body. They are then transplanted to the area under the arm where the missing lymph nodes had been. The idea is that they will take over where the missing lymph nodes had left off, filtering waste and draining fluid underneath the arm.

The surgery has been known to help some patients but in others it has made the condition worse. There could be further clinical trials performed to test the effectiveness.
