In brief: Lymph nodes?

It is always concerning to have swollen lymph nodes so it is important to see your doctor to be sure it is not that.
It could also be cysts, or a condition called hidradenitis suppurativa (acne inversa). This also requires specialized treatment, so you'll want to see a dermatologist for sure to get a diagnosis and proper therapy.
