It appears you are suffering from some kind of infection, which is making your lymph glands swollen and tender. However, this may also occur due to more serious causes like cancer. So please see a doctor and get yourself check up. Also whatever the cause may be, smoking will only worsen it. Consider quitting or at least cut down on smoking.

Best wishes.
