Best Answer

I have experienced this very recently. The doctors did not know what I had, they were thinking the mumps, then some other disease very similar to the mumps, and all the antibiotics that they were giving me was not working. We soon found out that I had cat scratch fever. If you have cats or have been scratched by a cat in your facial area, this is most likely what it is. It is not contagious, and the lumps will be there for 2-4 months. Bring this up with your doctor because I got a special medicine that helped the lump go down quite a bit. Hope this helps!
