After announcing that she has breast cancer on Monday, Giuliana Rancic, has undergone a double lumpectomy to remove the cancer. A Lumpectomy is the removal of the breast tumor (the “lump”) and some of the normal tissue that surrounds it. Lumpectomy is also known as a partial mastectomy, because part of the breast tissue is removed. In addition to the tissue being removed, Bill Rancic said some lymph nodes were also removed.
Giuliana’s husband, Bill Rancic, appeared on the Today Show to provide an update on his wife’s health. Bill explained that the cancer was on both breasts. The surgery lasted two hours.
Giuliana is recovering at home and will undergo chemo therapy. Thankfully, the cancer was caught very early and hopefully they got it all.
Giuliana has had a tough year with her attempts to have a child through IVF and the breast cancer. Proving she is a real fighter, Giuliana is planning on going back to work next week.
We wish Giuliana a speedy recovery.
