Wanda Sykes Reveals She Had Breast Cancer & Double Mastectomy [EXCLUSIVE]

Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes



Wanda Sykes just revealed she had breast cancer, and a double mastectomy.

The comedienne taped an appearance on “Ellen” moments ago when she discussed — for the first time ever — that she had breast cancer.

Sykes told Ellen DeGeneres that she went in to have breast reduction surgery in February, and that’s when the cancer was detected.

Gossip Cop was told exclusively by an audience member that Sykes said she had a double mastectomy in August, and went back on the road with her stand-up routine a month later.

The episode airs on Monday.

Check out a video clip of Sykes on “Ellen” below.
