Lipomas, which are benign fatty tumors.

Cysts, sebaceous cysts..these also form under the skin.

Those are two likely candidates.

Boils [blind boils] can be under the skin. This would be a concern in need of immediate attention.

If you attach a picture I can give you further assessments.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
