Olivia Munn had a double mastectomy: the actress was diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer

Olivia Munn undergoes surgery to remove both mammary glands

American actress and model Olivia Munn, known for her roles in the films X-Men: Apocalypse, Ocean's 8, and others, has undergone a complex surgery for aggressive breast cancer. The star underwent a double mastectomy (ed. – both mammary glands were removed).

Last year, the 43-year-old actress underwent a test that checks for the presence of 90 different cancer genes in the body. A thorough examination showed a negative result, but the doctor decided to play it safe by ordering additional tests, and he was right. Olivia Munn shared this news on Instagram.

"Over the past ten months, I have undergone four surgeries and spent so many days in bed that I can't even count. I've learned more about cancer, its treatment, and hormones than I could have ever imagined. I kept the diagnosis a secret so that people wouldn't see my anxiety and hospital gowns," the celebrity shared.

She called herself "lucky" because the disease was detected at a stage when surgery could still help her. The American woman wished her female followers to never have to face this diagnosis.

"I let people look after me when I have the strength when I can get dressed and leave the house, when I can walk with my son in the park. I needed to catch my breath and go through the hardest moments before sharing," the actress explained her silence.

Her comedian lover John Mulaney was by her side at the time, as well as her closest family. A few years ago, the artist became a mother for the first time, so the support of her son was also important for the movie star.
