It is important to include in survivor plans, monitoring, diagnosis, treatment and daily management of the extremity and truncal lymphedema which will affect the lives of some 3 million survivors.

How many cancer, carcinoma, squamous and lymphedema diseases impacts Americans each year? How many are miscounted due to redundant, overlapping terminology.  If a person does not die in this year 2014, does that make them a survivor?  I believe the Am Cancer Society is a bull s%#t organization ... for when I asked to contact their experts to help with my cancer condition ... nada.
