Angelina Jolie says that she has had a preventive double mastectomy after learning she carried a gene that made it extremely likely she would get breast cancer. The Oscar-winning actress and partner to Brad Pitt made the announcement in the form of an op-ed she wrote for Tuesday's New York Times under the headline "My Medical Choice." She writes that between early February and late April she completed three months of surgical procedures to remove both breasts. Jolie said that after genetic testing she learned she carries the "faulty" BRCA1 gene and had an 87 percent chance of getting the disease herself. Jolie will follow up with surgery to remove her ovaries, according to a report in People magazine.
