Oval wound on cat

Q Jade asks about Phrenic (cat - Long hair medium build, F) :

My cat got into a dog fight about 3 days ago. Today I noticed she has a huge oval bulge on her left side if you're looking down at her. It's just above her leg. I may not have noticed it before because she is very furry. She really didn't like me petting her for a while after, but now I pushed on it and she didn't seem to be in any pain. She should be fixed, but I'm not positive. What could it be?

Q Our vet says: If your cat was in a fight you should get this lump checked in case it is an abscess. Abscesses can often follow a deep bite wound and will need treatment.
