Famous Actress Confronting Health Crisis

(DailyEmailNews.com) – In concerning news for her fans across the world, a renowned actress just announced her breast cancer diagnosis and the ensuing decision to undergo a double mastectomy.

In an Instagram post, Olivia Munn shared her motives to publicize her personal battle while expressing a desire to be a figure of hope for those in similar conditions. “I hope by sharing this it will help others find comfort, inspiration and support on their own journey,” she said.

She further detailed the unexpected and rapid progression from health to finding herself recuperating from a significant operation, saying, “I went from feeling completely fine one day, to waking up in a hospital bed after a 10-hour surgery the next. I’m lucky. We caught it with enough time that I had options.”

In her candid post with photos of her hospital stay, Munn highlighted the crucial role of preventive healthcare in her diagnosis. She credited Dr. Thaïs Aliabadi for conducting a Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Score, which she believes was a life-saving action.

This assessment unveiled a high lifetime risk of 37% after considering factors such as her age, family history of breast cancer and having her first child after 30. This led to further investigations that ended in a diagnosis of Luminal B cancer in both breasts, a particularly virulent and swift-moving form of the disease.

Just 30 days after the biopsy, Munn underwent a double mastectomy, sharing her journey with gratitude for the medical intervention she received. She stated, “I want the same for any woman who might have to face this one day. Ask your doctor to calculate your Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Score”

“Dr. Aliabadi says that If the number is greater than 20%, you need annual mammograms and breast MRIs starting at age 30,” she concluded.

Munn also acknowledged the support of actor John Mulaney during this challenging period.
