    Angelina Jolie has ovaries, fallopian tubes removed over cancer risk: 'You know what you live for and what matters'

    Angelina Jolie revealed Monday night that she underwent surgery last week to remover her ovaries and fallopian tubes.
    Actress Angelina Jolie has taken the drastic step of having her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed so her children will never have to say, “Mom died of ovarian cancer.”

    The 39-year-old Oscar-winning star revealed Monday night that she underwent the surgery last week, and that the doctor who performed the operation treated her mother — who died of ovarian cancer at age 56.

    The operation came two years after Jolie underwent a double mastectomy because she carried a mutation in the BRACA1 gene, giving her an 87% chance of getting breast cancer.

    “It is not possible to remove all risk, and the fact is I remain prone to cancer,” she wrote in an op-ed in The New York Times.

    “I will look for natural ways to strengthen my immune system. I feel feminine, and grounded in the choices I am making for myself and my family. I know my children will never have to say, ‘Mom died of ovarian cancer.’”

    She revealed she learned she was at risk for ovarian cancer two weeks ago from a simple test she has annually that measures the protein CA-125 in her blood.

    Jolie wrote that her doctor informed her the test came back normal.

    “I breathed a sigh of relief,” she wrote. “But that wasn’t all. He went on. ‘There are a number of inflammatory markers that are elevated, and taken together they could be a sign of early cancer.’”

    She said she learned the CA-125 test has a 50% to 75% chance of missing ovarian cancer at early stages. Her physician recommended she see a surgeon immediately to check her ovaries.

    I know my children will never have to say, ‘Mom died of ovarian cancer.’


    “I went through what I imagine thousands of women have felt. I told myself to stay calm, to be strong, and that I had no reason to think I wouldn’t live to see my children grow up and meet my grandchildren,” she wrote.

    Her husband, actor Brad Pitt, was in France when her doctor broke the news. Pitt, 51, got on a plane within hours to be at her side.


    “Last week, I had the procedure: laparoscopic bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy,” she wrote. “There was a small benign tumor on one ovary, but no signs of cancer in any of the tissues.

    “The beautiful thing about such moments in life is that there is so much clarity,” Jolie wrote. “You know what you live for and what matters. It is polarizing, and it is peaceful.”

    On the day she opted to go the surgical route, she went to visit the surgeon who treated her mother, Marcheline Bertrand.

    “I last saw her the day my mother passed away, and she teared up when she saw me: ‘You look just like her,’” she wrote. “I broke down. But we smiled at each other and agreed we were there to deal with any problem, so ‘Let’s get on with it.’”

    Jolie said she is now undergoing hormone replacement.

    “I am now in menopause,” wrote the mother of six biological and adopted children. “I will not be able to have any more children, and I expect some physical change. But I feel at ease with whatever will come, not because I am strong but because this is a part of life. It is nothing to be feared.

    “It is not easy to make these decisions,” Jolie added. “But it is possible to take control and tackle head-on any health issue. You can seek advice, learn about the options and make choices that are right for you. Knowledge is power.”

    Given her history, seems like a wise move.

    When she chopped her tits off, I thought it might have been just a bit of an over-reaction in the face of serious hereditary issues, and none of my business. She's always been an impulsive dope. Now she's doing the same thing to the bottom floor and I feel like somebody should probably step in and take away her power of attorney. God help those adopted kids.

    This. At this rate one day she's going to wake up and think "OMG, I could get brain cancer!" and cut her head off...in that case, I'll applaud her decision..

    We had a lady like this down at the barn. She got pieced apart by surgeons.
    Just when she thought it was all over and was getting fake tits she died of brain cancer.
    Angelina is a loon but nobody deserves this. She must be scared.

    This married A+ list mostly movie actress with A+++ list name recognition is really really sick. As in not going to live another couple of years sick. Apparently it is one of the reasons she can’t gain weight and why she disappears for weeks at a time from the public.
