Angelina Jolie Had A Double Masterctomy
Angelina Jolie Had A Double Masterctomy

Hollywood actress decided to surgically remove both her boobs after learning she has 87% chance of getting breast cancer.

The actor has a defective gene, BRCA1, which doctors told her had increased her risk of developing breast cancer to 87%, and her risk of ovarian cancer, the disease that killed her mother at the age of 56, she wrote in the New York Times.

The surgery, which began in February, had reduced Jolie's risk of breast cancer to less than 5%, she said.

"I can tell my children that they don't need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer," she wrote. "It is reassuring that they see nothing that makes them uncomfortable. They can see my small scars and that's it. Everything else is just Mommy, the same as she always was. And they know that I love them and will do anything to be with them as long as I can. On a personal note, I do not feel any less of a woman. I feel empowered that I made a strong choice that in no way diminishes my femininity."

Angelina Jolie is not the first hollywood star to undergo preventative double mastectomy, last year Sharon Osborn revelead that she underwent the same procedure after she foundout she had a gene that carries a risk of breast cancer.
