Cats can get abcesses any where on their body. Their loose skin does not directly attach to their muscles like ours do, so they can get an abcess any place bacteria get introduced between their skin and body. Generally the abcesses open easily and drain and resolve with a little help from antibiotics.
I did have a cat who had a cyst develop on her vulva. The cyst was fluid filled and benign and my vet removed it when they did her spay surgery.
