Best Answer

This could be a herniated disc and you should get in to see your doctor and have it x-rayed. You cannot palpate a herniated disc the bony structures of the spine prevent this, these are likely benign lipomas and x-rays do not pick up soft tissue abnormalities.

They could have been there from birth and grown larger into adulthood and you never really paid attention to them. I have done a lot of research on this and found nothing on this sort of thing. Think about what you have been doing. If the lumps seem to be on the same spot on each side of your skull then perhaps you are wearing a bike helmet or if you are male, helmets in sports and it's irritating your skull causing the lump. It could also be bony spurs, but this is unlikely. Any lumps should be checked out by your doctor.
