The only way to know what is causing the issue is a a consultation with your veterinarian.
That said, some potential reasons for these lumps may include:
Infection or inflammation: It's possible that the area could be infected or inflamed due to various reasons, such as a skin infection, bug bite, or an ingrown hair.
Allergic reaction: Your dog may be experiencing an allergic reaction to something in his environment, such as a new detergent or carpet cleaner, which could cause skin irritation and swelling.
Cysts or growths: These could be benign growths or cysts that have developed in the area.
Complications from the neutering procedure: Although it's been over a year since your dog was neutered, there is a small chance that there could be complications related to the surgery, such as a reaction to the sutures or a localized infection.
As suggested, make an appointment with a veterinarian to properly assess the situation and provide appropriate treatment.
