In brief: No

I would caution everyone against these superstitious ideas.
They serve no purpose, and even if there were some basis (for example, someone with advanced cancer "looks malignant" because of cachexia), the impression is less sensitive and less specific than a scientific exam. Life's difficult enough without well-intentioned lay people frightening folks for no reason.
