They look like Sebaceous cysts.
It is better to get them removed and send it for histopathological examination(Biopsy).
The role of an Ultrasound is to tell whether the swelling is solid or filled with fluid.
The exact nature will be known through histopathological examination only.
Nothing to worry.
They are not cancers.
Wish you good health
