Lymphedema prevention includes aspects of primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention.
For primary prevention we mean the careful collection of anamnestic data, which is aimed at finding risk factors for the appearance of lymphedema, such as biological factors (sex, constitution, in particular obesity, hormonal status, familiarity), hygienic-environmental and climate, work activity and the most significant events in the remote pathological history, and of protective factors, such as lifestyle and lifestyle habits (diet, hygiene, sports activities), socio-health culture of Preventive Medicine, also in relation to the pathology of lymphatic circulation (similar to what is already practiced in the field of cardiovascular, arterial and venous diseases), as well as epidemiological studies on a regional, national, European and worldwide scale. For most of the risk and protection factors, however, the mechanism of action is not yet known.
