Swollen glands without pain. Have addiction to tobacco. Cancer?

I have chewed tobacco for 12 years. I am 30 soon to be 31. I drank heavily through college (7 years) and drink much more moderately now. I have have swollen glands for about a month no real pain but I can feel them when I tuck my chin down. More unconfortable feeling. Worse now that I have not had a chew in 30 + hours. Should I be worried about cnacer? or is this a normal reaction to stopping the chew?
