Good evening Arisandi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Yellow nail changes can occur in the two most common possibilities, namely psoriasis skin disease or nail fungus infection. For psoriasis, this condition is still not known the exact cause but this condition causes inflamed skin cells that are characterized by skin redness, peeling, thickened, feels dry, scaly and itchy or sore. As for nail fungus infections, this can occur when the nails are repeatedly exposed to dirt, damp, dark and warm, especially in those who often garden. This condition causes the nails to become dull and not bright, thickened, deformed, brittle and cracked.
So for your concern that this is a symptom of lung cancer, it looks like the correlation is still too far and unrelated. Lung cancer raises more symptoms related to the respiratory system rather than changes in nail color, such as shortness of breath, chest pain, chronic coughing, coughing up blood, and so forth.
Therefore for your case, we do not deny that something wrong is happening to you, but most likely it is not caused by lung cancer, but could be immune system abnormalities, arthritis, psychological disorders, low blood pressure, levels low blood sugar, anemia or lack of red blood cells and the like. To ensure this, it is important for you to check yourself with your doctor so that you can do a more thorough history, related physical examinations, and support such as blood tests, x-rays, ultrasound, and so forth.
Meanwhile, avoid stress, cigarette smoke, regular breaks, eat nutritious food on time, get enough exercise, and drink plenty of water. So, hopefully answering your question.
