It is very difficult to determine what the lumps could be from the description provided by you. Lack of exact location of the lump also makes it difficult.
Lumps on the shin can develop from the bone, skin, vascular structures (veins) or other musculoskeletal structures. Hence the exact treatment cannot be determined without a proper physical examination in person.
If it is not causing any trouble or symptoms you can leave it alone. But if you are concerned and have symptoms like pain, or if the lump is growing in size gradually or if it feels hot and pulsatile, it would be advisible to consult a doctor for proper examination and medical advice.
