It seems that due to hard hit in her breast there might be having soft tissue injury or some hematoma ie blood collection.
Nothing to worry, observe for having more swelling or throbing pain in the breast which indicates infection.
If this is the case then consult your doctor and get examined.
Do ice pack application daily 2-3 times.
Ok and take care.
