Angelina Jolie made headlines when she revealed she’d had a double mastectomy last year. But her cancer-prevention surgeries are not over yet, the actress said recently.
“There’s still another surgery to have, which I haven’t [had] yet,” Jolie told Entertainment Weekly recently. “I’ll get advice from all these wonderful people who I’ve been talking to, to get through that next stage.”
Jolie carries a mutation in the BRCA1 gene and had an 87 percent risk of developing breast cancer, according to the op-ed she wrote in The New York Times last May. She had the preventive mastectomy to reduce this risk.
But Jolie is also at increased risk for developing ovarian cancer.
