(blackmediaSCOOP) Comedian Wanda Sykes revealed this week she battled breast cancer and had both breasts removed! She found out she had breast cancer in February when she went in for a breast reduction.
“I had real big boobs and I just got tired of knocking over stuff. Every time I eat — oh, Lord. I’d carry a Tide stick everywhere I go. My back was sore so it was time to have a reduction. It wasn’t until after the reduction, that in the lab work, the pathology, that they found that I had DCIS [ductal carcinoma in situ] in my left breast,” Sykes says. “I was very, very lucky because DCIS is basically stage-zero cancer. So I was very lucky. But cancer is cancer.”
