The blockage prevents lymph fluid from draining well, and the fluid buildup leads to swelling, which can be painful and debilitating.

Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) work to prevent, assess, diagnose and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication and swallowing disorders. Speech disorders occur when a person is unable to produce speech sounds correctly or fluently, or has problems with their voice or resonance. Language disorders occur when a person has trouble understanding others (receptive language), or sharing thoughts, ideas, and feelings (expressive language). Swallowing disorders occur when an individual has difficulties chewing, preparing food and/or drink to swallow, and swallowing without food entering the airway (aspiration) or choking. SLPs also assess individuals who have difficulties communicating with verbal speech to determine if they are candidates for alternative/augmentative communication (AAC) systems.
