There are a multitude of reasons for swollen glands. It ranges from inflammation due to infection (maybe a hair follicle that was infected), an active infection to a growth inside the lymph nodes. Consult your doctor for an examination and a possible prescription for antibiotics if infection is present. If there is no clear indication about the cause, blood tests and a fine needle biopsy of the glands can be done.
