Herbal Treatment For Mumps?

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Mumps is a layman's designation of the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland itself is a pair of glands located at the front of the neck, and functions to produce the hormone thyroxine, which is an important function in regulating metabolism. The thyroid gland can be enlarged (goiter) due to various factors, including iodine deficiency, Grave's disease, Hashimoto's disease, pregnancy (in women), thyroid nodules, thyroiditis, and thyroid cancer. If this condition is true that you are experiencing, often the lump will be easily visible or felt on external examination. Not only that, other complaints can also arise depending on the cause of enlargement of the thyroid gland.
The question now is, where exactly do you mean bump? How big is the size? How long has it been appearing? Aside from breathing difficulties, are there any other complaints you feel regarding the lump?
Not only enlargement of the thyroid gland, there are also many other conditions that can cause lumps in the neck as you experience them, including neck skin infections, throat tumors, tonsillopharyngitis, laryngitis, parotitis, skin tumors, lymphadenopathy, torticollis, and so on. Without checking your condition directly, it is difficult for us to identify the exact conditions that triggered your current complaint. Therefore, we recommend that you see your doctor first. Depending on the cause of the lump, the doctor will be able to give you a different treatment later. If the doctor suspects that your condition is caused by an enlarged thyroid gland, your doctor may refer you to a specialist in internal medicine for further treatment. Several types of tests, including hormonal tests, ultrasound, thyroid function prints, biopsies, etc. can also be done by a doctor.
At this time, you should not press haphazardly the lump that appears on your neck. Get enough rest, and do not always indulge in heavy activity. When resting, raise your head slightly to your chest to make breathing easier.
Hope this helps ...
