Unhappy Pimple-like bumps that don't go away- are they keloids?

Hi, I have 2 pimple-like bumps on my jaw(they look just like pimples, are pinkish, 4 milimetres in size but are hard- not like pimples that have puss). But if someone looked at them, on face value they'd just think they are pimples. Trouble is they have been there for 2-3 years, and have stayed around the same size. But in teh last 6 months, I have gotten 2 more pimple-like bumps on the other side of my jaw(but they are smaller). I also have 1 on my chest (3mm in size). They aren't a big deal at the moment- just looks like I have pimples- but I'm REALLY getting worried cos I posted on the acne thread and someone suggested that they could possibly be keloids. I looked keloids up on the web, and what I have doesn't look like what I saw in the photos on the web. They said that they can form from pimples, and occur when the scar tissue is trying to form. They are fibrous/tissue growths and can get very big. The photos showed big/lump like, elongated growths.

Mine just look like pimples, but I'm afraid that its just the beginning and they'll get bigger. Or am i just panicking over nothing? I'd rather it if they were just cystic pimples... I'm scared, please advise me

i'm very unsure. However, you might seek out a school nurse to just look at them. he or she has seen loads of things like this.
God Bless
