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 went for the reduction,” she explains to Ellen. “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.

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