I assume you mean the lymph nodes when you say glands?

Lymphadenitis is a common cause.  This is inflammation of the lymph nodes that will occure when there is a nearby infection, like if the cat's gums are infected.

Whatever the exact diagnosis, the swelling you are talking about is caused by infection or nearby infection.  Should be easily treatable but it does require a vet visit right away.
