Growths Near Dog's Anus & Dog Behavior Fits

Dog anus growths - 1st photo
About 3 months or so ago, I noticed a growth on my dog's behind next to her anus. I took her to a local vet who said it was not a problem and to bathe it with salt and warm water, which I did.
After about 2 months I noticed that it was not healing and returned to my vet who prescribed antibotics (Amoxyclav) and some cream to apply (which did not work). She told me that it was a common growth and not to worry as it would go away.
Since then I noticed that there are 2 growths now and they seem to be getting worse, much bigger and inflamed.
I then went to the local Pet Barn and told them of the problem and was given ointment (Septicide antiseptic cream) to apply. At first it seemed to work very well and the growths were clearing up for the better. But this only lasted 2 weeks and now they seem worse than ever.
Tarsha is a Female Siberian Huskey, aged 15 years.
Tarsh, is not eating as much as she used to and sleeps most of the day and night. I was told by Vet that is because she is an old dog and again she said not to worry.
Tarsha's diet consists of Raw chicken wings and dog biscuits.
In the last 2 months Tarsha has had 3 fits, the first one was a bad one but the other 2 were not as bad as the first.
Yesterday she tried to get up but panicked and had a slight fit. I still take Tarsha for walks in the morning and evening which she still loves.
Can you tell me what the growths are and can they be healed? I was told by my brother that she would need an operation to remove the growths, but as Tarsha is old I feel she would not handle an operation. I am also a pensioner and could not afford it. Hoping you can help.
