I was talking today to a friend who lost her husband through lung cancer last year. By the time he was diagnosed he was stage 4. He didn't really get any symptoms except losing a bit of weight and a hacking cough, but his consultant told them something very interesting which I would like to share with you.
I think we all know that clubbing of the fingertips can be a sign of respiratory problems, but apparently nails that bend right over are an early sign. This includes toenails as well. This chap had has this for a good couple of years before diagnosis but had never sought medical advice - I don't think most people would, would they? But I think this is definitely worth knowing about.
I am not saying that this has to be lung cancer coz I don't know, but it is a sign that things aren't right in the lung department, so if any of you have this and don't know the cause I would get it checked out.
