Iphone 3gs bulging battery

hiya was not sure where to post this but here goes.my iphone 3gs which I bought off tm 1 year ago has stopped working, wont turn on or charge, the battery seems to be bulging causing small cracks in the back of phone. I have it outside incase it explodes or something, im wondering if anyone has come across this and if I can get it fixed or do I have to cut my losses and dispose of it! tia

That can happen to lithium batteries if they get exposed to heat or get knocked around. You were right to take it outside as they can explode. If it is bulging, the battery needs to be replaced.
