Not always. Mine are always swollen (the ones right under your jaw). I think it might have something to do with my allergies. The swelling goes up and down, and sometimes even almost goes away, but they never hurt. Also sometimes if I press on them kinda hard, I can feel something draining in the back of my throat, and then they won't be as swollen anymore.
