Amazona has fours lumps

My parrot, a 12 years old white-fronted amazon (Amazona albifrons) has 4 small lumps growing out of his neck, I just noticed that while petting him. It's late night so I cannot take my pet to any vet right now, but please, could I have some advice? I am very worried, he's been with me since I was 8 years old, now I am 20 and he's like my son.
I have tried to take photos but it's impossible given they are covered by his feathers and he doesn't let me approach with the camera to his neck, these lumps are the same colour of his skin and are four in a row, the feel soft and as if they were filled in with some liquid.
