Many possibilities: If there is no pain, no increase in size, unlikely to be cancerous. If increasing in size, or painful, you need to see a general or ortho surgeon for eval and likely work up or excisional biopsy. Small non painful lumps are frequently inclusion cysts, fatty tumors, possibly a cyst coming from a local joint. For reassurance, have your pcp take a look first. ...Read more

If : If the scalp moves freely over these lumps, and they feel hard like bone, they are likely to be osteomas which are benign and don't typically need treatment unless symptomatic. In some rare cases, they may be related to a systemic disorder ( such as gardner's syndrome associated with colonic polyps). My best recommendation is have someone check these out to make a proper diagnosis and hopefully reassure you there is nothing to worry about. ...Read more
