Default Tumors overnight!?!?? Please help!

I have had my hedgehog for almost 4 years and I take her out and love her every single day, so I definitely would have noticed any big bumps. Last night she was perfectly fine and now this morning I took her out and she has a HUGE lump under her right front leg and a smaller lump on her back. It's also appears that her mouth/jaw is swollen. Does this happen out of nowhere!? She seems to be breathing shallow and extremely exhausted. In my heart I know she's dying but I don't understand how this happened overnight. I'm heartbroken.

They can grow overnight but not usually so that they go from nothing to huge. There's so many things that could be. I would get her to a vet asap to find out just what they are and if they can be treated. If nothing else the vet can give you meds to keep her comfortable.
