Choose the style you prefer, and we will engrave it with your Lymphedema risk or diagnosis and other vital info.
Lymphedema is a risk for breast cancer patients and survivors. Most commonly associated with lymph node damage and removal during mastectomies, lymphedema can also result from tumor growth that impedes the flow of lymphatic fluid or from radiation treatment, which can cause scarring and inflammation of the lymph nodes and vessels.
Lymphedema can be triggered by trauma to a person’s affected arm. Therefore, breast cancer patients and survivors wear medical ID jewelry called “lymphedema alerts.” This tells EMTs and other first responders not to perform any medical procedures on the impacted side, helping minimize the risk of developing this chronic condition.
A POST-MASTECTOMY ALERT MEDICAL ID OFFERS DAILY PROTECTION
If you or someone you love has had a mastectomy or breast cancer, medical ID jewelry is a true necessity. We recommend listing your name, diagnosis(es), any medications, all allergies, and multiple emergency contact numbers.
