Have you noticed a change in your fingernails and/or toenails either as a result of your disease or chemotherapy. If so, what changed?

I'm curious because my oncologist asked how long my nails had been like that. The nail bed has a high curve instead of flat and I have developed vertical ridges in my nails.

I believe this is called "Clubbing" of the nails and fingers. It is one of the symptoms of the disease, yes.

I do not know why it happens, your doc should have explained that to you. A search on google will bring up some good info and pictures tho. I did this awhile back out of curiosity.
