Noticed little lumps on skin. Appear after shower nad then disappear. Family has history of cancer. Guide

I am a 23 years old female.
About 6 months ago I first noticed after a shower that these little lumps under my skin on my shoulder appeared. These are painless, and have only gotten a bit longer and thicker since the first appearance. They only appear after a shower or after putting body lotionon, for a few seconds or minutes and then disappear again.
They feel swollen like lymph nodes.
My family has a history for cancer, however after doing some research could these be parasites?
Any help or direction with this would greatly be appreciated.

You have mentioned this lesion appeared after using some lotion then this may be due to hypersensitivity reaction. Little swelling at the shoulder which disappears sometime surely not related to any sort of cancer. At this region there are no major lymph nodes.Parasitic infection may be there but without clinical examination of the lesion it is difficult to comment. You should visit a dermatologist's office for better guidance.
