Wanda Sykes discusses her double mastectomy on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”

HollywoodNews.com: On today’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Wanda Sykes discusses having a double mastectomy after discovering she had breast cancer earlier this year.

The cancer was detected after Wanda had undergone what was essentially a cosmetic procedure, to have a breast reduction.

I was very, very lucky because DCIS is basically stage-zero cancer. So I was very lucky.”
