Breast edema affects quality of life and may result in a cosmetically unsatisfactory outcome for the patient. Therefore, it is important to treat and prevent its development. In the light of this information, the present randomized controlled study aims to determine the effect of manual lymph drainage method in the treatment of breast edema in patients undergoing breast-conserving surgery and adjuvant radiotherapy.
