American actress Kate Micucci of Big Bang Theory fame said she had been diagnosed with lung cancer.

Micucci shared the life update on TikTok, saying she’s staying in the hospital and had lung cancer surgery.

“This is not a TikTok. This is a SickTok,” she began.

She noted that it’s “really weird” to get lung cancer, especially since she never smoked a cigarette in her life.

“It was a surprise,” the 43-year-old said. “But also I guess, also, it happens and so the greatest news is they caught it early, they got it out, I’m all good.”

“It’s been a little bit of a trip and probably be moving slow for a few weeks but then I’ll be back at it,” Micucci said.

The video also showed Micucci walking while she was in a hospital gown and while she had an intravenous drip, assisted by a medical staff.

Her followers showed their support in the comments section.

One of them also asked what made Micucci have the cancer checked out. She said she had one thing in her bloodwork that came back really high, prompting her to go to a preventative doctor for a few scans.

After having her heart scanned, the medical experts saw the spot in her lung.

Aside from Big Bang Theory, Micucci appeared in other shows like How I Met Your Mother, Malcolm in the Middle, and Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities.

She also lent her voice in animated shows like Rio 2, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, The Lego Batman Movie, Scooby-Doo! installments, and Adventure Time.

Micucci is also a singer, with songs like The Working Dead, You Got a Bike, and Let Me Ska My Van Into Your Heart for the animated series Steven Universe.
