Is she gonna die?

My best recommendation is to get her to your local vet and have her examined. There are numerous things that can happen there, from a hernia to a faecal impaction or even eggs (females can lay eggs even if no male present - they're just infertile; just like chicken do).

Ok,Thank you

It is very hard to say from a picture to be honest, she needs a hands-on examination. If indeed the lump prooves to be a tumor, it's not good news I'm affraid. But if it's a cloacal impaction, that can be treated. Or if we are dealing with eggs stucked in the pelvic canal, they just need breaking and eliminating.

I managed to take her on the daylight

Definitely one of my colleagues needs to poke that area around. If we are dealing with a hernia and the swelling we see are in fact intestines, she is in a lot of discomfort.

You are more than welcome. Please insist on her beeing seen today.
