Mumps is a thyroid disorder. Thyroid disorders consist of hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism and thyroid cancer. Hyperthyroidism is a condition of thyroid disorders that causes thyroid hormone levels to be too high, whereas hypothyroid conditions occur due to hormones that are too low. Thyroid cancer occurs if there are changes in malignant cells in the thyroid.
Related to your question, it is important to know in advance what type of thyroid disorder is happening to your mother. Both hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism and thyroid cancer can show lumps that look necky but have different symptoms.
PTU (propylthiouracil) is an antithyroid drug intended for sufferers of hyperthyroidism. Hyperthyroidism can be treated with drugs or radio therapy with radioactive iodine and operative measures. If your mother has hyperthyroidism, it is unlikely to spread to the lungs because hyperthyroidism does not have properties that can spread to other organs. Malignant thyroid cancer is still possible to spread to surrounding organs, especially the lungs and lymph nodes.
Associated with the administration of white turmeric as an herbal medicine, it has not been scientifically proven in the medical field to reduce symptoms or eliminate the causes of thyroid disorders. Therefore, administration of herbal plants is not recommended to be given unless there is definite evidence based on research from the medical field.
I suggest that your mother exercise regular control with a specialist in internal medicine or a doctor who treats your mother. Discuss with your doctor about the exact type of illness suffered by your mother. Some tests such as thyroid hormone tests, thyroid ultrasound, CT scan or MRI can help to determine thyroid abnormalities suffered. So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
