I have two hard and painless lumps on my scalp, in the crown

Customer Question

I have two hard and painless lumps on my scalp, in the crown region. The don't move and are about the size of a pea, maybe a little larger. They are the the same colour as my skin and you can feel them better than you can see them. I'm an otherwise healthy 28 year old female and only noticed them after a hair cut.
Do you have any suggestions as what these could be and wnether I need them seen to?
Many thanks
