In the video above please watch one of the world leading expert oncologists for hereditary breast cancer why she feels Jolie’s surgery was unnecessary. Feel free to share your thoughts below after you read the article.
In March of this year, Angelina Jolie revealed she underwent surgery involving the removal of her ovaries and fallopian tubes to lessen her chances of ovarian cancer. Prior to that she was very open about her voluntary double mastectomy to prevent the risk of breast cancer. The latest procedure forced her into early menopause, which she said she is happy about.
“I actually love being in menopause,” Jolie said in an interview with the Daily Telegraph…. “I’m very fortunate.” The 40-year-old also described herself as feeling more “settled” now that she’s older. “I feel happy that I’ve grown up. I don’t want to be young again,” she said.
Jolie has been very open with the public about her health, penning two NYT op-eds, the firstafter she had a double mastectomy in 2013 — another preventive surgery that dropped her chances of developing breast cancer from 87 percent to under 5 percent. When she removed her ovaries and fallopian tubes, she wroteabout her decision and how it would affect her family. “I feel feminine, and grounded in the choices I am making for myself and my family,” she wrote at the time. “I know my children will never have to say, ‘Mom died of ovarian cancer.”
