Strange lump on american bulldog's right elbow

I have a 15 month old american bulldog. Shes very sweet. 

About a week ago I noticed a small bump starting to form on her right elbow. I figured it was just a bug bite. I took a couple pictures of it and then forgot about it for a week. After checking up on it recently, it looks like it has gotten a larger. Half of it is starting to scab. The lump feels fairly stiff. It doesnt feel like its filled with fluid or anything. 

I'm struggling financially right now and I would love to save around 100 bucks by not taking her to the vet to have them give me some 50 cent cream and want to see her back in a few months. (which similar situations happened to me before) So, i'm hoping someone could take a look at these pictures and hopefully give me some advice. If a vet visit should be made ASAP, then I have no problem doing that. 


please take a look at these pictures here. the first one is from about a week ago and the others are from today (7/7)

Thank you so much for any advice! Its extremely appreciated.

Hello, I have a 6 yr old english bulldog with the same exact situation. 

A week ago I saw the growth and tonight she was limping up the stairs because it hurt her.  When I went to see what it was, she got grumpy and started fighting with her 7 yr old bullie sister.

This ruptured it and now its bleeding.  She keeps licking around the area, but doesn't seem to be in any pain.  I am going to wait it out.  I take them for walks all the time and think she got bit or came in contact with a plant that caused an allergic reaction.

Bulldogs are soooo sensitive.  I would like to know what your outcome was.

Thanks, Veronica
