my parakeet has a swellen foot, his body on perch for balance,

my parakeet has a swellen foot body on the prch, stsrts to loose balance but balancese his self back, hes in with his father. i put the other parakeet in with them and the father and the third parakeet i think picked on him.

i took him to a vet yesterday and she didn't see any truma so she said it may be a form of tumor cancer. how can i tell if it is broke or just hurt or, cancer and is there anything i cam do for him?

a warm cloth, rub an asprin on his foot anything? i cant just let him suffer and wait for him to die. it's crule. i wont do it. can you tell me what i can do to heal my little parakeet?
