Why does my dog have bumps on his back?

I noticed that my dog has slight bumps on his back. Are these under his skin? Is this normal or should I be worried it is a sign of disease?

It's very possible that these bumps are benign(non-cancerous/not a sign of disease). It may be a fatty tumor, sebaceous cyst, wart, abscess, or mast cell tumor. However, if you do not know the reason, then you should make a vet appt. Note if the size, color, shape, location has changed,when you noticed them, and if dog's eating/activity level has changed.
