Digital News Report – E! channel TV host, Giuliana Rancic, announced on NBC’s ‘TODAY’ show that she would be getting a double mastectomy as the next step for her breast cancer treatment. Initially, when she was on the morning news program in October of this year, she said that she was going to get two lumps removed and then follow it up with radiation treatment.
Rancic explained that the plans changed when the doctors were not able to get all the cancer lumps removed. At this point, she explained that she had to make a decision either to try another lump removal in hopes of getting the cancer or to go with the extreme measures of getting a mastectomy.
Rancic decided on the double mastectomy instead of the other procedure to help prevent any more breast cancer problems.
Rancic first discovered she had breast cancer while she was undergoing fertility treatments. It was her fertility doctor that discovered the breast cancer as part of a routine screening.
