What are your thoughts on Angelina Jolie double breast mastectomy?

What are your thoughts on Angelina Jolie double breast mastectomy?I am very undecided if I had that choice what I would do.She wasn't diagnosed with breast cancer but discovered she has inherited a genetic mutation which puts her at high risk of breast and ovarian cancer.
I think it was a very brave decision she had to make....and she did what was right for her and family....

Totally did what was right for her. She wants to be there for her family in the future. But I find the publicity and the overwhelming support in the media for it as putting pressure on others that that is the right choice for everyone. My Mum had a double mastectomy but she still died of cancer. Cutting your breasts off does not guarantee the dreaded disease won't strike somewhere else, and for alot of people you can't just whip out a colon and replace it with another one just because there's a history of colon cancer in your family. Also would she have removed her ovaries before having her precious children, yet another heart wrenching decision a woman would have to make if she knew she had the choice.


I so agree ClaireElizabeth...Far to much media coverage.

Good on her for taking that scary step, as it runs in her family she prob gona get it anyways so yea best to get it before it gets you, one thing though there a many woman out there that are doing the same thing for the same reasons but we don't hear about those strong and scared woman do we!!! So well done to all those lovely ladies we're all thinking of yous.

I think that she is a very brave woman. It couldn't habe been easy to have the operation, but she did it! I really respect her because for a woman it's not an easy decision to make. I think that she is a inspiration to any woman that are suffering from breast cancer. I like it how she isn't superficial and doesn't just worry about looks

After seeing the latest pic's of here after the op, I think it was just an excuse to get a bigger boob job.


Everyone is entitled to there own opinions but I really don't think any woman on the planet would do this to get a bigger boob job....It must be a heart breaking descion for any woman to make and endure...

it is a very difficult decision for any woman to make, but she felt it was the right one for her and her family, it may not be for everyone, but it is their choice to make, my mother has had breast cancer, but she was in her late 60s and there is no evidence of it in our family, so i have not been tested,and it is highly unlikely we carry that gene, would i do it, cannot really say, would have to be in the position myself before i could make a judgement call on this one, KUDOS to you Angelina, you are indeed one savvy brave young woman,and Delilah what you say is outrageous and quite insulting not only to angeline Jolie but to every woman who has ever suffered from Breast Cancer, as if she would put herself through such an ordeal, and believe me it is quite an ordeal,she could have just as easily got a bigger boob job any time,Argghh..


So with you Jewellnz....:-)

Yes, a huge and brave descision to make. Everyone has to do what is right for them and I hope its something I never have to face. I think Angelina going public with her decision has certainly raised a huge awareness of the issues around breast cancer which can only be a good thing.

Just amazing and brave and done wonders for women everywhere!!

#9

So amazing, i would do the same only i would hope to have money like her to replace them with implants. Although id much rather my precious life than to die so i would do it anyway regardless of the implants :)

If it helps her to have less worry in her life then surely it has to be good? It doesn't necessarily guarantee anything but I am sure she would have thought long and hard about what was the best choice/chance for herself and her family. I have never been one of her biggest fans but I do admire her independence, and her 'who cares what others think' nature. Good on her for being brave enough to take such a big step.
