Welcome to GRACE. The possible range of symptoms from a pancoast tumour are varied, but they tend to be constant rather than come and go. In addition, your age would make it extremely unlikely that you had lung cancer. Since you had finger clubbing from the age of 12 the reason for that is going to be some thing as well besides lung cancer. There are many possible reasons for finger clubbing.
Since you are worried about lung cancer, please consider to stop smoking. That is the best way to prevent it.

Pain it self doesn't do but intensity varies and today even my eyelids are droopy. I visited doctor yesterday but he said everything is normal to me.

As Janine stated, it is extremely unlikely that your problems are caused by a pancoast tumor. You might want to read this thread, which includes some comments from Dr. West: http://cancergrace.org/topic/very-scared-of-pancoast-tumor-please-any-a…
I hope that your doctor can discover the cause of your symptoms and help you feel better.
