Olivia Munn Underwent Double Mastectomy Following Breast Cancer Diagnosis

Olivia Munn Underwent Double Mastectomy Following Breast Cancer Diagnosis - The Hard News Daily

The actress Olivia Munn revealed on Wednesday that she underwent a double mastectomy as part of her treatment after receiving a diagnosis of an aggressive form of breast cancer last year.

Munn, 43, stated in a lengthy social media statement that she had made an effort to take charge of her health. Munn has acted in numerous films and television shows, including the HBO series “The Newsroom.”

Munn underwent a comprehensive genetic test in February 2023, shortly after receiving a normal mammogram, to screen for 90 cancer genes. She said that none of them, including BRCA, the most well-known breast cancer gene, showed up on her tests. Around the same time, her sister’s test results were negative.

Munn wrote, “We gave each other virtual high fives over the phone.”

Munn was diagnosed with luminal B breast cancer two months later. She got the double mastectomy a month later.

“I’ve had four surgeries in the last ten months, spent an inordinate amount of time in bed, and learned more about cancer, cancer treatment, and hormones than I could have ever imagined,”  Munn wrote. It’s surprising that I’ve only shed two tears. I suppose I haven’t felt as though I have enough time to cry.

Munn primarily urged people to consult their doctors to determine their breast cancer risk assessment score in her tweet. Munn’s obstetrician-gynecologist’s early detection of her cancer was made possible by this action.

Munn remarked, “The fact that she did saved my life.”

The risk assessment takes into account age and a family history of breast cancer; Munn noted in her post that having her first kid after the age of thirty was a contributing factor. Munn has been dating comedian John Mulaney since 2021. The two of them have a son named Malcolm who is two years old.

Munn’s doctor ordered an M.R.I. based on the results of her risk assessment, which led to an ultrasound. This caused a biopsy to show the malignancy.

Munn expressed her gratitude to her doctors, friends, and family in her post. She expressed her gratitude to Mulaney for investigating side effects and recuperation for all of her surgeries and prescriptions.

Munn’s social media over the last year has shown both joyful and glitzy moments, such as family beach images and shots of Munn wearing high-end clothing. She posted pictures of herself this past weekend at the Oscars ceremony, where Mulaney gave an award, while donning a silver Fendi gown.

She added, “I’ve tended to let people see me when I’m feeling energetic, when I can get dressed and leave the house, when I can go to the park with my baby boy.”

“I have maintained complete confidentiality regarding the diagnosis, anxiety, recuperation, pain medication, and paper gowns. Before sharing, I wanted to gather my thoughts and get through some of the most trying moments.
