My Cat Junior always has a certain degree of swollen lymph nodes. In his case means he is fighting an infection. My first concern when I discovered them was lymphoma, so I had the vet do a needle aspiration to rule out cancer. In his case it showed inflammation and other "stuff" indication infection. He was put on antibiotics to aid him in fighting the infection. I have to go back to the tests to see what stuff is neutrophils was one thing that was found.
I just got out of the hospital Friday from surgery, so I did not see where this was answered. I hope this helps. I always worry about my Junior. He has swollen glands right now and a URI, that won't go away.
