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
