It sounds like benign cysts. However, if they don't go away after a couple of weeks or if they are very painful, he should probably see a doctor just to make sure.

uhm
they sound like normal reactive lymph nodes.
tender is good.
painless lumps are of more concern, especially if they are hard or really fixed.
