Thank you for your question, CT scan and heart scan are not able to pick up any abnormality so you have to get an oxygen saturation which will make sure your clubbing is not due to low oxygen levels. If this test is normal then this clubbing is not due to serious issue and will not lead to lung cancer. Let me know if you have questions, thank you.
