Sharon Osbourne has revealed that she underwent a preventive double mastectomy over fears she could develop breast cancer.

The 60-year-old famed artist manager, television personality and wife of Ozzy Osbourne, told Hello! magazine that doctors told her she had a genetic mutation which raised her chances of developing breast cancer, which influenced her decision to have the procedure done.

“As soon as I found out I had the breast cancer gene, I thought: ‘The odds are not in my favour’. I’ve had cancer before and I didn’t want to live under that cloud: I decided to just take everything off, and had a double mastectomy,” she told Hello!

She also told the magazine that the operation lasted 13 hours. “I didn’t even think of my breasts in a nostalgic way, I just wanted to be able to live my life without that fear all the time. It’s not ‘pity me’, it’s a decision I made that’s got rid of this weight that I was carrying around.”

Sharon had a bout with colon cancer in the early 2000s.
