In brief: Prevention

Mumps virus is reasonably preventable by receiving the proper doses of vaccine.
This vaccine has decades of proven safety and efficacy.Keep in mind, it may be neccessary to boost your immune response with a booster dose in teens or adulthood. No good drugs exist to treat mumps virus.

In brief: Prevention

Mumps is a viral infection for which there is no treatment.
It is an infection of the saliva-producing glands in the cheeks. Protection is provided by the MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine. Should you get mumps, only supportive care can help.
