Redness and swelling in breast

I had a lumpectomy in left breast 2 years ago.  I experienced a little lymphedema in had during this past summer, now under arm and breast are swollen.  Is this normal?

It certainly isn't "normal" but it may be an exacerbation of the previous lymphedema. I would advise you to see either your Physician OR Physical Therapist who may have treated your previous LE. Keep in mind though that this could be something entirely different .... in any case it should be evaluated fairly soon to determine the cause.  Regards ....
