Clubbed Thumbs? Fine or Not?

Patient : Hello! I am a 21 year old female, and I wasn't completely sure about what doctor to ask about this. From what I understand, this is genetic. Clubbed thumbs. I have had them since I was born pretty much. I never did any thumb sucking or nail biting or anything! My background medically has also been pretty clear. I have a bad history with heart disease, but that is it for the most part. My question is, should I be concerned about them? I have never brought it up because I haven't had any problems with them thus far. I just want to know if they are a sign of anything dangerous and if so, what? It would also be nice to know if it could be caused by some other means, considering none of my family that is living has clubbed thumbs. Any information would be greatly appreciated!
