In brief: Cysts on the head
It sounds like you may have epidermal inclusion or sebaceous cysts.
These generally are the result of a trapped hair follicle that builds up skin debris. They are pretty easy to remove with local anesthesia. I would see an ent, facial plastic, or dermatologic surgeon to discuss your options.
