Sharon Osbourne Undergoes Double Mastectomy: ‘It Was A No-Brainer’

By Radar Staff

Sharon Osbourne says she underwent a double mastectomy, after learning that a gene she carries put her at serious risk of breast cancer.

“For me, it wasn’t a big decision, it was a no-brainer: I didn’t want to live the rest of my life with that shadow hanging over me,” the former America’s Got Talent judge tells Hello! magazine.

The 60-year-old show biz personality said “the odds” would not be in her favor if she didn’t go through with the procedure.

“It’s a decision I made that’s got rid of this weight that I was carrying around,” The Osbournes star told the magazine.

Sharon, who battled colon cancer more than 10 years ago, said, “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.”

Sharon said the thought of being there for her new granddaughter Pearl influenced her decision.

“I didn’t even think of my breasts in a nostalgic way,” Sharon said, “I just wanted to be able to live my life without that fear all the time.”

Sharon’s 26-year-old son Jack is currently battling multiple sclerosis.
