Olivia Munn Shares She Underwent Double Mastectomy Amid Breast Cancer Battle

Olivia Munn Reveals Breast Cancer Diagnosis and Double Mastectomy Procedure

Oliva Munn is giving more insight into her health journey.

While announcing that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer, The Newsroom actress shared that she had undergone major surgery during her treatment. 

As Olivia noted in her March 13 Instagram message, after a visit with her gynecologist, an MRI, an ultrasound and a biopsy, she underwent a double mastectomy.

"I went from feeling completely fine one day, to waking up in a hospital bed after a 10-hour surgery the next," she continued, but added, "I'm lucky. We caught it with enough time that I had options."

The 43-year-old admitted that she wouldn't have found her cancer for another year until her next scheduled mammogram and credited her doctor for calculating her Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Score. 

As she put it, "The fact that she did saved my life."

Two months before her diagnosis, the X-Men: Apocalypse star had her yearly mammogram and took a genetic test, which had negative results.

In total, Olivia—who shares son Malcolm, 2, with John Mulaney—underwent four surgeries during her treatment. 

"Surprisingly, I only cried twice," she wrote. "I guess I haven't felt like there was time to cry. My focus narrowed and I tabled any emotions that I felt would interfere with my ability to stay clearheaded."

But she also took a moment to express her appreciation to her loved ones, who had been there to support her. And Olivia's post received an outpour of support, including from John, who couldn't help but cheer on his partner.
