    Today Angelina Jolie revealed that she was forced to make the agonising decision to have a preventative double mastectomy, after tests showed she had an 87 per cent chance of contracting cancer.

    The actress opened up about her traumatic experience in a U.S. newspaper, saying that she made the decision to undergo the procedure in February after learning that she is a carrier of the deadly BRCA1 cancer gene.

    The 37-year-old's mother Marcheline Bertrand died at the age of 56 from ovarian cancer, which Angelina revealed she had a high chance of contracting.

    But the Hollywood star has not let the life-changing operation interfere with public engagements - she visited the Republic of Congo on March 26 on humanitarian duties and attended the G8 summit in London on April 11 with William Hague, after her initial operations but before the all the procedures had finished.

    Rough decision to make. But when you're told you have an 87% chance of dying from something, and you can fix it by cutting something pretty but useless off.....I do understand her decision.

    Yup, no point in suffering and dying from something you can prevent...Cancer is no joke.

    I know of three women in rl who have had this procedure done.
    My mom is one of them.

    She has fake ones now.

    It seems quite drastic but when you look at it in the long haul it's not.
    With today's technology and science it's amazing what they can do and the results can look pretty damn good.

    Precisely.

    I still think it's got to be a rough decision to make...........like a man opting to cut off his testicles, if he found out he was at a high risk for prostate cancer....but if you have the money - and that's a HUGE if.....otherwise you go through life feeling like less of a woman, with a flat, scarred chest... - it isn't a huge deal.

    The "IF", is the big part.
