Lung cancer is one of the deadliest forms of cancer because early symptoms are vague and go relatively unnoticed. The disease is usually only diagnosed at an advanced stage. However, a simple test allows you to find out for yourself if something is wrong.

The clubbing test
The Schamroth test is very simple. You can perform it yourself to check if you have drumstick fingers. Place your index fingers in a hook (as if you were forming a heart with your fingers) then place their nails against each other. Normally, you will see a tiny diamond-shaped break at the cuticles. If not, you probably have drumstick nails.
Warning: just because you can’t see a space between your fingernails doesn’t mean you’re sick. You may very well have been born with fingers of this shape. In any case, contacting your doctor and having a check-up can’t hurt.
