German term or phrase: Lymphabfluss vs. Lymphabstrom
both come up often in various contexts in a single report, one of them must certainly be "lymph drainage" or some such like, but are the two concepts the same

lymphatic flow
Explanation:
I'd call both of them "lymphatic flow". Neither of them would be lymph drainage, though: as I understand it, both Lymphabfluss and Lymphabstrom describe the natural flow of the lymph while lymph drainage is referreing to the medical intervention of improving the lymphatic flow.

In any case, the link has all three at once. :-)
