‘Big Bang Theory’ Alumna Kate Micucci Reveals Lung Cancer Diagnosis: “Never Smoked A Cigarette In My Life”

Kate Micucci, who portrayed Lucy on The Big Bang Theory, has revealed she was diagnosed with lung cancer.

“This is not a TikTok, it’s a SickTok”, the 43-year-old actress and comedian said in a video she shared on TikTok after undergoing surgery for the disease.

“I had lung cancer surgery yesterday,” Micucci said from the hospital. “It’s really weird because I’ve never smoked a cigarette in my life so uh, you know, it was a surprise. But I guess it happens and so the greatest news is they caught it early, they got it out — I’m all good.”

Her TikTok post also included a video of herself walking in the hospital hallway while wheeling her IV drip.
