    The actress asserted that the disease came off as a surprise to her as she has never smoked even a cigarette in her life. “It’s really weird because I’ve never smoked a cigarette in my life so uh, you know, it was a surprise,” Micucci said.

    She further said that she is safe now as the disease was detected in time and removed from her system. “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,” she added.

    Micucci, the ‘Big Bang Theory‘ actor, said she has been advised to keep a low profile and move slowly for a few weeks. “It’s been a little bit of a trip and [I’ll] probably be moving slow for a few weeks but then I’ll be back at it,” she said in the video, adding that she can’t wait to get back to painting.

    Why am I still talking … ‘cause I’m on drugs!” she joked as she ended the video with a thumbs up.

    The United States has been grappling with lung cancer as one of the most prominent diseases in the country. It is the top disease that leads to several casualties each year in the county, accounting for about 1 in 5 of all cancer deaths.

    Although smoking is the top reason for causing lung cancer, it is possible for a non-smoker to get diagnosed with the disease. People who don’t smoke can be diagnosed with the disease because of exposure to radon, passive smoking, air pollution, or other factors, as per the American Cancer Society.

    If diagnosed at an early stage, the disease is preventable with 70 percent of patients surviving it. However, if it spreads to other parts of the body, lung cancer can prove to be fatal for the patient with a survival rate as low as five percent.
