What does "mm" mean in camera lenses?

Asked by fuglyduckling (412points) June 14th, 2014

I have a lens that reads 18–55mm and another that is 50mm. The 50mm takes photos zoomed in, the subject looks closer to the camera.

I want to take wide angle portraits because I need the cartoonish effect. What should I do?
