Sudden swellings on pet mouse?

A black female mouse has suddenly developed a noticeable swelling inside her left rear leg, can any one point me in the right direction as to treatment? Or is there none?

I should explain that this is not my mouse and I don't know much about them, but it shares my house and I feel bad that it looks so uncomfortable, she is not off her feed, and she is still active, but her walk is being affected by the swelling and I'd like to ease her discomfort if possible.

    There is a really good chance it's an infection or possibly a tumor. Take a look at the mouse's leg and see if there is an open wound. In either case, sad to say, most vets won't operate on something like that.
