Take part in a cancer research study about body image and lymphoedema

Are you over 18? Have you been told in the last 12 months that you have lymphoedema as a result of cancer treatment by a health care professional?

If you have, our reseachers would like to hear from you!

A team of researchers at DCU, funded by the Irish Cancer Society, are looking for people who have been recently told they have cancer related lymphedema to take part in a research study. The study involves filling out questionnaires on how you feel about lymphoedema, how it affects your life and your body image. Body image refers to the picture we have of our own bodies and the emotions and thoughts associated with that picture.

For further details and more information, please go to or contact Emma Byrne at  or from 9am – 5pm at the following number  083 0953847.
