Angelina Jolie's Doctor Explains Her Double Mastectomy Decision (Recap)


.
On Wednesday Angelina Jolie's Doctor Explains Her Double Mastectomy Decision was a top story. Here is the recap: (Extra) "Extra's" Mario Lopez sat down with renowned breast cancer surgeon Dr. Kristi Funk. Dr. Funk who has treated celebrities like Sheryl Crowe and most recently Angelina Jolie opening up for the first time on TV about Angelina's brave decision to have a double mastectomy which sent shockwaves around the world.

Mario: "Did she know right away that she was going to have the double mastectomy?" Dr. Funk: "She didn't have it right away, but probably knew with her family history that it was a choice she would eventually make…Her decision was not made overnight…It wasn't based in fear."

Mario: "Did you know eventually she'd go public?" Dr. Funk: "I knew that was her intention… She is just philanthropic to the core. She could never keep this a secret, and be who she is! She is someone who wants to save lives and she is doing that every day!"

Mario: "How's she doing now?" Dr. Funk: "Perfect!"

Mario: "Was Brad by her side? I imagine you got to meet him. Was he cool?" Dr. Funk: "Incredibly cool…The coolest!"

Mario: "Do you feel more pressure when you're working on a big star like Angelina? Dr. Funk: "I delve into a slightly more creative mode than maybe I've ever gone into in my life, knowing that it would be publically scrutinized…I developed some really new and beautiful changes to both the preparation for surgery, and the actual operation."

Mario: "What does every woman who has the brca1 gene need to know about the double mastectomy?" Dr. Funk: "The mastectomy is not necessary even if you have the BRCA gene and you have breast cancer."

Mario: "So what are some other options?" Dr. Funk: High risk surveillance. MRI's, mammograms, ultra sounds…Combine it throughout the year so that at any given month or two, something is happening to look at your breasts." - more on this story
