Lumps on back of 18 month old's head

Please forgive me for posting in AIBU but I'm trying not to freak out here.
I was playing with DD 18 months this evening and felt four pea-sized lumps on the back of her head. They don't really move and they seem painless.
She's absolutely fine. Eating well, laughing/playing as usual. She has a cold and was a bit moody today, but nothing extreme.
Has anyone has experience of this before? Or should I be booking a GP appointment?
Some advice would be greatly appreciated

I'm trying not to panic, thank you everyone.
She has had a red cheek for a couple of weeks. I thought it was weather-related but now I'm starting to come to silly conclusions.
It might be slap cheek. Could this be a virus that's causing the swollen glands?
I'm sorry for asking. I just don't know what I should be doing right now!

Thank you everyone, again.
She's got a cold this morning, but is ok. I've felt the glands again and they're like little peas that can move around.
Normal temperature. Just a little runny nose.
I think if she gets a temperature then I'll call 111. I work FT so it's another worry that I'm not with her, but nursery will call if she gets a temperature and I'll have to collect her.
I've barely slept definitely FTM here
