    Hello,
    Orchitis is a common complication of mumps It is usually present in 20-30% of males who suffer from mumps. Orchitis usually appears 7 to 10 days after salivary gland swelling, but it can occur at the same time or even before this symptom appears.I would suggest a physician’s evaluation. Hope it helps.Take care and regards.You can find more information about this from the following site: http://mumps.emedtv.com/mumps/complications-of-mumps.html
