Angelina Jolie’s Breasts, Ovaries & Fallopian Tubes Removed To Prevent Ovarian Cancer

March 24, 2015 – Angelina Jolie’s Ovaries & Fallopian Tubes Removed To Prevent Ovarian Cancer 2 Years After Double Mastectomy

Hollywood superstar Angelia Jolie has removed her ovaries and fallopian tubes over concern that she is developing ovarian cancer.

This came 2 years after she had her two breasts removed to prevent breast cancer.

The actress, who has lost her mother, grandmother and aunt to the disease, said she had the procedure last week after results from a blood test raised fears that she may be in the early stages of cancer.

Although later tests showed that wasn’t the case, Jolie said she chose to go ahead with the surgery because of her family history and because she carries a gene mutation that had given her a 50 percent risk of developing ovarian cancer, the same mutation that put her at 87 percent risk of developing breast cancer.

“I did not do this solely because I carry the BRCA1 gene mutation, and I want other women to hear this,” Jolie wrote in an op-ed piece in The New York Times, the same way she announced her double mastectomy two years ago.

“A positive BRCA test does not mean a leap to surgery,” said Jolie, who is married to fellow Hollywood heavyweight Brad Pitt.

“In my case, the Eastern and Western doctors I met agreed that surgery to remove my tubes and ovaries was the best option, because on top of the BRCA gene, three women in my family have died from cancer,” she wrote.

Her doctors said that she should have the preventive surgery about a decade before the earliest onset of cancer in her female relatives.

“My mother’s ovarian cancer was diagnosed when she was 49. I’m 39.”

This surgery has put Angelina Jolie into early menopause.

      It’s a pity this is happening to her.But come to think of it,what is left of her?In my opinion Nothing because after removing her breast due to cancer fear,now she has gone ahead for double mastectomy(i.e removal of fallopian tubes and ovaries ) for the same reason.This is too much of asking and testing God.This isn’t right but i pray God forgives us all and us of every infirmities.

    Because my generation has any kind of disease that does not means I will have the disease too, medically they believe that’s the way it’s works but I shall believe the report of The Lord, this white people always believe anything Doctor told them, if doctor tells them they have only two weeks to live they would start their burial preparation immediately, but I trust my fellow Nigerian if Doctor said look Mr you have two weeks to live trust me the Nigerian man will say I reject it in Jesus name, and he will start to pray he won’t die.

    I once read in a magazine about someone that had a surgery to remove her breast because of the history of breast cancer in her family, and she ends up having cervical cancer,in my own personal opinion removing your breast, ovaries the doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t have cancer in other parts of your body or any other terminal disease, that is AJ Pitt opinion and solution, another thing is most of this hollywood celebrity are addicted to surgery, they are not scared of going under the knife

    I have seen people who got healed from cancer. Jesus is the healer. You need Him. What if it happens to be a disease that you cannot control by removing any of your organs. What would you have done? I pray you receive His healing grace. It is well with you Jolie…
