Pale white bumps/moles under skin?

I have a number of bumps on my upper chest that look whiter or paler than my normal skin tone. Most are flat but a few are raised, and they are a little harder -- like if you squeeze a regular mole or freckle, it's soft. These feel like harder, dense skin. They almost look like moles under the skin, or acne or bug bite scars in appearance. I'm fearful of cancer, which my mother has, but she is always in the sun. Except for one bad sunburn on my chest as a small child, I have not had this area exposed to the sun since then. I'm a little heavier so I keep a shirt or top on when in the sun. Could anyone tell me what this is? I've searched everywhere & can't find anything. Thank you!

Here are photos. Note, the red bump is one of the raised ones that I scratched at.
