In brief: Lipoma possibly

That area is common for lipomas- completely benign fatty tumors just under the skin.
Unless they become painful/enlarged (which might indicate an infection and would need medical treatment)- they do not require any intervention and may go away either fir no reason or dye to weight loss.
