Angelina Jolie Reveals She Had Her Ovaries Removed


Two years after Angelina Jolie had a double mastectomy to prevent the onset of breast cancer, the actress said she had her ovaries removed because of a 50 per cent risk of ovarian cancer.

The mutation in the BRCA1 gene also gave her an estimated 87 per cent risk of breast cancer. After a blood test revealed high levels of inflammatory markers that could be signs of early cancer, the 39-year-old decided to have her ovaries removed.

In an op ed in the New York Times, she wrote "I wanted other women at risk to know about the options. I promised to follow up with any information that could be useful, including about my next preventive surgery, the removal of my ovaries and fallopian tubes."
