Hard lump on my dogs hip.

So Scully has a hard lump on her right hip.  It is about palm size.  It just flared up overnight.  We took her to the vet and they did xrays so its not hip dysplasia or the joint popping out of the socket.  They did a biopsy and there was no sign of cancer its just a hard bloody mass. The vet thinks she probably fell and its just a really bad pulled muscle/sprain.  However the swelling isn't going down.  Some days she's good and will put weight on her foot and walk around and is excited and happy and then other days like today she wont eat or put any weight on it.  This has been going on for 3 weeks.

Hello~Have you tried aspirin made for dogs, she might have some inflammation in her hip that is causing the intermittent pain.  I would certainly ask your vet about trying her on some.
