mouse with tumor

I have 2 mice that I got back in January. One, Moose, started developing a tumor a couple months ago. I decided to keep an eye on until she seemed uncomfortable. Today I noticed that it has goten very large. The tumor is on her snout, just under her eye. Her eye is only about half open now but she still seems to be acting normally. I have also noticed that there is blood in the opposite ear. I think the tumo is pushing on her insides causing the bleeding. Is it time to let her go? She seems to be acting normally but with the bleeding I don't know if she's just covering it up. I called my vet but they don't see mice so can't give me any advice except the number for another vet.

I'm no expert but it sounds to me like the poor little Moose may be suffering. I would definately think about taking her to the vet and have her put to sleep I know it's tragic and really sad but of course you love your little one and don't want to see her hurting.
I know if I had internal bleeding from the pressure of a tumour I would want relief and sooner rather than later.
