Jean Taylor pictures,has lung cancer when doctor recognises it as a symptom of the disease
Jean Taylor, 53, of Wigan, felt 'ridiculous' going to the doctor to ask about her nails, which curved around her fingertips
Ms Taylor posted about her clubbed nail on Facebook, which was shared more than 85,000 times, and received more than 27,000 reactions and comments
Ms Taylor, who works in a call centre, said: 'The support [after the post went viral] has been unreal. That feels good' (pictured: her nails before they turned clubbed)
Ms Taylor credits the quick-thinking medics with saving her life, as scans showed two tumours in both of her lungs (pictured with granddaughter Lacey, before her nails turned clubbed)
