Good morning Yusup, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Mumps is a disease that involves swelling of the thyroid gland, a gland that is butterfly shaped and is located in the middle of each person's neck. This gland has a role to produce thyroid hormone which later this hormone will be useful in various processes in the body such as metabolism, regulating body temperature, blood pressure, and so forth.
Mumps is divided in two based on symptoms, namely toxic (toxic) and non-toxic (non-toxic). The so-called toxic is if apart from swelling, there are also symptoms of increased thyroid gland function or called hyperthyroidism, such as weight loss for no apparent reason, irritability, decreased concentration, muscle feeling weak, can not be silent, heart palpitations, anxiety, easy sweating, easy to feel hot, hair loss, difficulty sleeping, and diarrhea. Meanwhile, it is called non-toxic if there is only swelling without hyperthyroid symptoms.
Factors that increase the risk of this disorder are aging, female sex, having a family with similar complaints, consumption of certain drugs, and for women, the condition of pregnancy and menopause. But anyone can actually be affected by this condition. Handling later will vary from oral medication to surgery.
In your case, if there are any of the symptoms we mentioned above, then you are in the toxic or toxic group, and if you say dangerous or not, of course if left untreated it will be dangerous. Complications can occur with heart failure, heart rhythm disorders, brittle bones, and an increase in the severity of other symptoms. But on the other hand, it does not mean you have to panic. You just need to do everything procedurally, go to the provincial hospital, wait for services and so forth. The important thing is not to delay treatment, but also do not need to rush to panic and harm yourself and others. So, hopefully answering your question.
