Angelina Jolie wrote an opinion piece titled My Medical Choice that was published yesterday, where she explains that she has underwent a breast removal procedure, since she's afraid of breast cancer that she lost her mother to.

"My doctors estimated that I had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer", she writes in the article. Angelina started the process in February and completed it on April 27, and the procedure included a breast reconstruction with an implant.

"I wanted to write this to tell other women that the decision to have a mastectomy was not easy," she wrote. "But it is one I am very happy that I made. My chances of developing breast cancer have dropped from 87 percent to under 5 percent."
