Take her to the vet. It could be a tumor.

Get the dog to the vet this week to find out what is wrong!

We don't know what the bump is, but the vet sure will. Aren't you worried about a bump that is growing in size, and is clearly painful? Conditions that are ignored only get more serious - meaning more expensive to treat. Call the vet today, and get her in on their first open appointment. If that lump bursts and gets infected, you are going to have a real mess on your hands.

Get her seen by a vet. Why would you touch it? It would cause her even more pain. Since you don't know what it is don't touch it. Only vets can touch it. If you can treat it at home then you can touch it. But just to apply cream

She probably still has fleas, but you can't see them. Get some Capstar or Nitenpyram online. It will kill the fleas within about 30 minutes and for 24 hours. Sprinkle baking soda and salt into the carpeting; leave on for 24 hours, then vacuum. Repeat the Capstar each 3 days until fleas are gone.
If this doesn't help, take the dog to the vet to be assessed. Of course, you can take her to the vet at any time if you need to.

EVER hear of a vet? You know the people that went to school for 5 years to diagnose and treat animals with those sort of things?
Check one out, you will be surprised what information (and accurate) he/she will give you

Have a vet check that. It's not nothing to do with fleas. Something else is going on.

Time for a visit with the vet.
It could be some kind of Tumor or a number of other things. Only a vet is qualified to tell you for sure what the lump is and what can be done to treat it.
You don't mess around when it comes to finding any kind of a lump anywhere on your dogs body. Your dog needs to be seen by a vet, the sooner the better, especially if
the lump is getting bigger, to see if it is a Cancerous Lump or not. You need to rule that out.
If your dog does not like it when you touch the lump, it's because it is very painful. Get her seen by a vet.
