TV presenter Michaela Strachan has undergone a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with cancer. - reported the SkyNews.
Surgeons urged her to have the procedure to reduce the risk of the disease spreading from one breast to the other.

The 48-year-old wildlife expert will now undergo reconstructive surgery.

She told the Mail on Sunday's You magazine: "The tears started to roll as my doctor tried to tell me what would happen next, but I only took in every fifth word or so.

"The one word that registered was 'cancer'."

She added: "I couldn't get my head around the fact that on Monday morning I'd been apparently healthy, by Tuesday I had cancer, and by Wednesday I was talking about a double mastectomy."

The Springwatch host said her experience showed the importance of regular check-ups.

"If I'd put mine off, my story could have been a very different one," she said.

Last year, actress Angelina Jolie had a double mastectomy to prevent her getting breast cancer.
