In brief: Infectious

Swollen tender lymph nodes over a several day perior probably represents an infectious etiology.
These particular lymph nodes can become swollen due to infections within the mouth. Mono and other viral ilness can cause a similar picture. Persistant swollen lymph nodes warrent evaluation and biopsy to exclude a lymphoma.
