Angelina Jolie has double mastectomy to prevent breast cancer

Updated: 05/13/2013 10:36:47 PM PDT

Actress Angelina Jolie recently underwent a double masectomy after genetic testing revealed that she was at high risk for cancer, the disease that killed her mother at age 56.

A story at EW.com revealed that Jolie announced the surgery in a New York Times column.

"I wanted to write this to tell other women that the decision to have a mastectomy was not easy. But it is one I am very happy that I made," wrote Jolie. "My chances of developing breast cancer have dropped from 87 percent to under 5 percent. I can tell my children that they don't need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer."

Jolie, 37, is married to actor Brad Pitt. The couple has six children. She is the daughter of actor Jon Voight. Her mother Marcheline Bertrand died of ovarian cancer in 2007.

Seems like a smart decision health-wise for her though.

What kind of shlock journalist wrote the article cited by OP? It's only part of the story.

Jolie still has breasts-- just not natural ones:

...Jolie said three months of medical procedures that the mastectomies involved were completed April 27. She said the surgery included implants to reconstruct her breasts...

I commend her for the decision to have the mastectomy and go public with it, but I do not commend her for looking like a skeleton. What happened to the Angelina from Gone in 60 Seconds?

She made the right decision (a tough one at that) when it came to her health. Good for her.

She was rail thin then, I'm not sure what you're talking about. She had more meat on her bones in Tomb Raider. But she's always been really thin, just look at the movie Hackers.

You say that, but anyone who has a female in their life should care about this. They have been able to find a way to "predict" women who could get breast or ovarian Cancer.

Taking a preemptive strike against the boobies seems pretty extreme to me, but her body she can do what she wants.

Fake boobs are fine but what about fake nipple, do they look natural?

Bingo! Perhaps you are beginning to see the light.

Who cares if a celebrity does it. Well, apparently the masses do.

Meanwhile there are a ton of unfortunate, courageous women who have double mastectomy procedures done all the time...young and old alike.

...but they don't get an op ed piece in the NY Times.

I have a problem with cutting off breasts as the solution. We need a better treatment option than that. Hopefully someone figures one out soon.

No back pedal.

It's still file under "who cares".

She's no different than anyone else going through this.

Why the accolades?

True, but there are no "better options" at this point.

Down the road we will look back at this with wonder.....sorta like all the amputations that were done during the civil war to save lives.

...but I'm with you on a better treatment option....it's just not there yet.

I'd normally follow your thinking on this. But in this case a woman of her stature, a sex symbol in this era, comes out with something like this. It'll give them the courage as well.

And I shouldn't just say women, men have this done as well. Montel Williams had it done.

Did Montel get DD breast implants?

Thanks for that.

This is a powerful message for A Jolie to come out publicly with this info
