Angelina Jolie Explains: "Why I Had Breast Removal Surgery!"

Angelina Jolie breast removal surgery 2013
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."
