Actress Olivia Munn, 43, revealed her breast cancer diagnosis and that she underwent a double mastectomy.

On Instagram, Munn revealed her breast cancer diagnosis, coming two months after negative results from a genetic test and mammogram.

In a 2023 Instagram post, Munn shared she took a genetic test for 90 cancer genes to proactively monitor her health.

I tested negative for all, including BRCA (the most well-known breast cancer gene).” She shared the initial relief she and her sister Sara felt after testing negative, celebrating over the phone. However, the relief was short-lived as she received her breast cancer diagnosis shortly after a negative mammogram.

Munn’s revelation has brought attention to the complexities of cancer diagnosis and the importance of continued vigilance even when initial screenings are clear.

Her experience underscores the unpredictable nature of the disease and the critical need for regular health monitoring.

Munn’s openness about her health battles highlights the courage needed to face cancer.
