 ???? about odd growth on a skink!

While out on a hike, I spotted a male skink on a tree. Near its forelegs, on each side, were two greyish-black nodules that rose and fell as the skink breathed. Is this a sign of disease, or something to do with a growth phase? I’ve seen many skinks in my life but never noticed something like this before.

Very possible that they were ticks. Sometimes they will attach themselves to a reptiles scales if they have a small exposed area that was torn.
