I had a Mumps (ABS) IgG test and the results indicated it was abnormal. Could this mean that I had the mumps recently?

Hello and thank you for your question. It’s my first priority and pleasure to help you.

I understand your concern.

As per your description, Mumps (ABS) IgG test indicates past infection.

IgG antibodies stay positive for life providing protection against re-infection.

So you shouldn't worry about it.

Interpretation immunity from prior infection or vaccination.

Hope this helps.
