Conservative and dietary interventions for cancer-related lymphedema: a Systematic review and meta-analysis.

Specific to breast cancer, a statistically significant, clinically small beneficial effect was found from the addition of manual lymph drainage massage to compression therapy for upper extremity lymphedema volume.
