Christina Applegate Had a Double Mastectomy



Earlier this month, Christina Applegate revealed she had been diagnosed with an early form of breast cancer. Today, she claims she is “100% cancer free” thanks to a double mastectomy. Ouch. People reports:

Privately, she admits, “Sometimes I cry. Sometimes I scream, and I get really angry and I get really into wallowing in self-pity sometimes, and I think it’s all part of healing.” Having watched her mother, Nancy Priddy, battle breast cancer – and then suffer from a recurrence many years later – the Emmy-nominated star of Samantha Who?, 36, told interviewer Robin Roberts that she wasn’t taking any chances….”My decision, after looking at all the treatment plans that were possibilities for me, the only one that seemed the most logical and the one that was going to work for me was to have a bilateral mastectomy,” said Applegate. “So basically I had a prophylactic double mastectomies.” Explaining her rationale in taking that dramatic step, she said, “I didn’t want to go back to the doctors every four months for testing and squishing and everything. I just wanted to kind of be rid of this whole thing for me. This was the choice that I made, and it was a tough one.” The surgery took place three weeks ago. She did not undergo radiation or chemotherapy.”

So, I guess this means that Christina Applegate is getting implants now. I think that’s one good thing about breast cancer. Don’t you think so, Keira Knightley?
