What causes hair filled lumps and the scalp

I've had 3 lumps on my scalp 1.the size of a bean, 2. the size if a pea, and 3.the size of BB. NOT PAINFULL. No drainage ever. And they never really grew until about a 1year is so ago. Well I had my bf take a closer look and discovered that the luoe are full of hair. And he said that all around the lumps are like squiggly lines or track like looking lines that also he can see hair growing underneath the scalp. And it's black hair when the rest of my hair is much lighter. Please does anyone have any answers?

So, it could be a pilar cyst.  May look like hair in it but it is would actually be dead skin in it and maybe the hair growing through. They could be moles. They could be Pilomatrixoma which is a hair follicle tumor – skin or purple-colored, caused due to overproduction of matrix hair cells.  Anyway, I'd get them checked out hon.  Is seeing a dermatologist a possibility for you?
