The symptoms of the disease appear 16-18 days after the infection. This disease usually lasts for 2 weeks; on average. There is no specific treatment for the disease but vaccination is available to prevent it. 

Unvaccinated people are at a higher risk of getting the virus. If someone is affected by mumps once, then there is a high chance that the disease may re-occur. This viral disease usually affects young children and adults.
