What does Mumps Look Like?

In cases of mumps, the glands that produce saliva toward the back of each cheek, in the area between the ear and jaw can swell and become painful. Due to the swelling, the patient can look like there is something stuffed in their cheeks, like a chipmunk stuffs nuts. Touching the swollen area can be painful and a doctor should be consulted.
