Mumps - Symptoms and causes
Mumps is a viral infection that primarily affects the parotid glands, situated below and in front of our ears. If you or your child contracts mumps, it can cause swelling in one or both parotid glands. Some people infected with the mumps virus have either no signs or symptoms or very mild ones. When signs and symptoms do develop, they usually appear about two to three weeks after exposure to the virus. The primary sign of mumps is swollen salivary glands that cause the cheeks to puff out.
