Micucci previously spoke out about the diagnosis stating it was shocking to her. “It’s pretty weird because I’ve never smoked a cigarette in my life,” she explained. “So uh, you know, it was a surprise. 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.”
Kate Micucci then said that it has been a “little bit of a trip” and she’s going to be moving slowly for a few weeks. “But then I’ll be back at it,” she reassured. She wrote in the comment section what some of her symptoms were before the diagnosis. “I had one thing in my bloodwork that came back really high,” she recalled. The actress pointed out she had high CRP levels, which meant there was inflammation somewhere in her body.
After finding out about the inflammation situation, Micucci was seen by a preventative doctor, who completed a series of tests. As they scanned her heart, the medical team discovered a spot in her lung.
