Sharon Osbourne Reveals She Underwent A Double Mastectomy

Sharon Osbourne has revealed that she had both breasts removed after finding out that she was at risk for developing breast cancer. "The Talk" co-host, who has been afflicted by cancer before, said, in an interview with Hello! magazine, that it wasn't an experience she wished to repeat:

"As soon as I found out I had the breast cancer gene, I thought: 'The odds are not in my favor'."

"I've had cancer before and I didn't want to live under that cloud: I decided to just take everything off, and had a double mastectomy," she added.

Osbourne added that the choice—to live without fear of cancer—was a no-brainer:

"I didn't even think of my breasts in a nostalgic way, I just wanted to be able to live my life without that fear all the time."
