Mumps | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What are the signs and symptoms of the infection?

A person with mumps often looks like a chipmunk. That is because the parotid gland just below the jaw swells in about two-thirds of all infected individuals.

Children often have very mild infections. In a man, mumps is likely to cause inflammation of the testes. On rare occasions, this leads to infertility. A pregnant woman who has the mumps may be more likely to have a miscarriage.
