I would suggest sanding and undercoating the area to remove as much of the rust as you can. Spray paint it with something like POR-15, which actually encapsulates rust and prevents it from expanding. Depending how far along it is, welding may be your only option, but it sounds like you are early enough on that you could nip this in the bud.
