Angelina Jolie‘s double mastectomy was apparently just the beginning. The Oscar winner's ovaries are coming out too, according to People magazine.
She implied as much in the New York Times op-ed in which she revealed she had a double mastectomy after learning she carries a “faulty” BRCA1 gene.
That trait could dramatically increase her risk for breast and ovarian cancers, which she is determined to prevent, no matter the physical toll.
“I started with the breasts, as my risk of breast cancer is higher than my risk of ovarian cancer, and the surgery is more complex,” the star wrote.
But her medical odyssey is not done.
