Wanda Sykes is revealing that she underwent a double mastectomy during her recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Sykes talks about the moment she discovered she had lump in her left breast. She tells Ellen:

    "This was in February. I went for the 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 in my left breast."

As a result, the comedian decided to have a bilateral mastectomy. She adds:

    "I had both breasts removed and because now I have zero chance of having breast cancer. It sounds scary up front but what do you want? Do you want to wait and not be as fortunate when it comes back and it’s too late."

Great to she she's happy and healthy!

The full episode airs on Monday, September 26th!
