In brief: Something infectious
Mono is from the ebv virus, and can cause swollen glands (lymph nodes) and big tonsils.
Strep throat can do the same thing, but strep throat needs antibiotics. Some other infections can cause big lymph nodes. More rarely, blood disorders and blood cancers cause swollen lymph nodes and fatigue (person often gets anemic). This all means that a trip to the doctor would be wise.
