Man's leg baffled doctors11th May 2009

The condition affects over 100,000 people in the UK. Cheryl Pike, chair of the British Lymphology Society and specialist physiotherapist, said: "It is important that we raise awareness of this condition amongst the healthcare professionals, particularly GPs, so that they can diagnose the condition quickly and help patients get access to the right treatment."
