Mumps or parotitis is an infection of the salivary glands caused by a virus. This infection causes inflammation which can cause the glands to swell, causing the neck to look swollen and painful.
However, swelling around the neck area can also be caused by several possibilities, such as:
Diphtheria glandular infection Submandibular abscess
Diphtheria is an infection of the throat caused by bacteria which can cause swelling of the glands around the neck and can be dangerous because it can cause pseudomembranes and swelling of the airway which can block the airway. Infection of the glands around the neck can also cause what you experience where this infection can be caused by bacteria, tuberculosis and others. Submandibular abscess is a condition of fluid and infection around the lower jawbone which can also cause complaints that you are experiencing.
It's a good idea to check with your doctor to find out what you are experiencing. And because you are pregnant, you can convey it to the doctor so that later drugs are given that are suitable and safe for pregnant women.
I hope this helps.
