hi, welcome to Healthcare Magic forum.
this doesnt sound like mumps. mumps usually occurs in front of ears not below jaw. check if your throat is infected or any problem with the gums. spreading on to ear is a weird thing. you ll need to take an antibiotic but its better you consult a doctor for the same. takecare of your health.
