You should take her to the vet. The vet may want to stick a needle in them to draw out some cells. It could be harmless warts or cysts, proliferative tissue from an ear infection or a hematoma, etc. Are you sure they are not ticks? Make an appt and monitor their size and any changes in the mean time.

Not caused by ticks, but actual attached ticks was my question. They can look like skin tags when engorged.
