Christina Applegate reveals she underwent surgery to remove ovaries, fallopian tubes

Alec Baldwin in the Emmy Awards in Los Angeles

Christina Applegate has opened up about her decision to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed in order to reduce her cancer risk. "My cousin passed away from ovarian cancer in 2008", the actress explained.

During an appearance on Today, the Bad Moms star, 45, revealed that she had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed.

Despite this, Christina Applegate is concerned about just a lot about her daughter, who could be a carrier of the gene.

Applegate, who'd previously had a double mastectomy in 2008 after being diagnosed with breast cancer, continued remarking on her recent surgery, stating, "That's how I've taken control of everything". I try to keep her stress levels down.

"That's how I've taken control of everything", she said in the interview. That's one other thing off the table. "The chances of my daughter being positive for the BRCA are very high". I am doing all that I can while knowing that in twenty years it will have to start testing. Still, she decided on the double mastectomy to avoid having to go through the procedure again. "To me it breaks the heart to think that there is a possibility for it to be affected", she concluded. Hopefully by then there will be advancements. There's also a chance that Applegate's daughter Sadie, 6, will inherit the gene, which has prompted a major lifestyle change for the family. The "Up All Night" star also revealed that they are 100 percent organic at home. "The other big killer is stress", she adds. My daughter is a vegetarian and practically vegan.

Applegate sees her oncologist every six months for a checkup, and encourages women to see their doctors and start getting mammograms as soon as possible. That's her choice. That's how she eats.

Christina Applegate has battled breast cancer and come out the other side, and in an interview with Today the former Married... That's a hard thing to say to people especially right now.

Applegate in the past has starred in Stand Up to Cancer campaigns and founded Right Action for Women, which helps women pay for breast cancer gene tests. "I'm not anymore. I try to find the lining in everything in life", she said.
