What causes small lumps behind the ear?

I have small bumps on the back of my ears. They are not movable and are not painful or red. 2 bumps are behind my right ear and those are bigger than the one behind my left. I was just wondering if this could be potentially serious. They have been there for awhile (over a couple months).

it requires local examination. can be nodular leprosy. clinical examination of whole body should be done. after proper diagnosis treatment can be recommended.
