Inside Angelina Jolie's Double Mastectomy Decision

Jolie underwent a preventive double mastectomy after learning she had an 87% risk of developing breast cancer due to a defective BRCA1 gene. Her maternal family history warranted genetic testing for BRCA mutations: her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, had breast cancer and died from ovarian cancer, while her grandmother died from ovarian cancer.
