Q. My Schnauzer has swollen and very hard lumps on each of her sides. This appeared very quickly . Is this a organ concern or a muscle? Very worried..

A. Lumps that can be seen on the body usually arise from the skin. Those could be tumors or allergic reaction mainly, it could also be enlarged lymph nodes depending on the location.
I recommend taking your Schnauzer to the vet and get it checked asap, the vet will probably take an aspiration sample from the lumps and check it under the microscope.
