Enlargement of the parotid glands..

Does anyone of you na nagkaroon na ng ganitong case na swell and matigas ung parotid glands nyo? I thought nung una mumps cya kaso hindi cya masakit and hindi ako nilalagnat, malaki lng cya kaya pati ung face ko naging round ung hitsura. I went sa doctor dito sa health center and she gave me an anti-viral drug which I have to take for 7 days. My problem is pano kung di mag work ung gamot since we're not sure kung mumps cya or hindi. Ano bang specialist sa ganitong case para mapuntahan ko just in case di mag work ung anti-viral drug?

    You should ask your primary Physician that question. You're jumping the gun, teish. He/she can probably can easily take care of your minor problem.

    If you must know: Benign Parotid Gland tumor is very common. Usually, the Head, Neck and Throat Surgeon is the one trained to remove this. Because the surgical procedure entails working around the facial nerve of the face, the 5-hour surgery requires additional care of a General Anesthesiologist.

    But of course, first please ask your Family or Primary Physician your pertinent questions. And good luck!

    @Teish: You need to go see an ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) physician and have the inside and outside of your buccal (cheek) area examined if you want a 2nd opinion.
