Giuliana Rancic to Undergo Double Mastectomy

E! news and red carpet host Giuliana Rancic announced Monday on Today that she is undergoing a double mastectomy as part of her breast cancer treatment.

The 36-year-old had a failed lumpectomy that didn’t get rid of the cancer. Instead of going through another lumpectomy, Rancic decided on a double mastectomy — which means there’s less than a one percent chance of the cancer returning.

In addition, Ranic would like to have a child with her husband, Bill, and radiation treatment would further delay parenthood.

“For me, it was important to get the cancer out,” Rancic told Ann Curry. “That’s what I wanted to do, just get it out.”
