Does Mumps Affect The Rate Of Puberty?

In 2007, aged 15, my left testicle got swollen to about twice the size of the other. now, my left testicle is about a third the size of the other. This was because my brother had mumps at the time I think. Would the mumps thing affect my rate of puberty, because I haven t seen any changes.

Hello,

Mumps does not affect puberty, but on the other hand, it will affect infertility. So, you can do semen analysis if you are not married yet and do not have children.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
