When it comes to breast cancer, many would assume that a mastectomy would be the best way to ensure survival.

Suzanne Somers

It's pretty amazing what plastic surgeons can do these days — especially with the help of stem cell research.

Suzanne Somers beat breast cancer 12 years ago after undergoing a lumpectomy to remove a malignant tumor. Unfortunately, 65% of her right breast was also removed in the procedure. She recalled in the harrowing experience in an interview with People magazine, saying:

Giuliana Rancic Is 'Doing Well' After Breast Cancer Surgery

Filed under: CancerSurgery

Bill and Giuliana Rancic

Such good news!

Giuliana Rancic is at home recovering after undergoing double lumpectomy surgery on Wednesday.

Her husband, Bill Rancic, went on the Today Show to share the good news that his wife is "doing well" and told the hosts:

“She's a trooper. She pulled through it and was kind of relieved to get it over with and get the cancer out. She's doing well at home and recovering."

The successful surgery came, however, after a VERY long and emotionally strenuous day for the couple, as Bill explained:

"It was kind of a long day. There's many steps in the process when you go through this. Because it was on both breasts, the morning started off with a two hour MRI where they had to put a guide wire in so the surgeon knew exactly what area to remove…Watching her being wheeled into that operating room was heartbreaking for me. I'm just doing everything I can to support her and make sure that she's comfortable and try to make her laugh as often as possible."

Hopefully more good news will follow too. Giuliana is expected back at the hospital on Friday for a check-up and then plans to be back at E! to resume working on Monday.

"We’re hoping that we get a good report tomorrow, God willing, then it’s radiation," Bill added. "We will kick off 2012 with a new outlook on life.”

Martina Navratilova Diagnosed With Breast Cancer

Filed under: ZportzSad Sad

This is so sad.

Tennis legend Martina Navratilova has been diagnosed with a form of non-invasive breast cancer, called DCIS.

Thankfully, she and her doctors detected the disease early during a routine mammogram, and she's expected to make a full recovery!

She says:

"I cried. It knocked me on my ass, really. I feel so in control of my life and my body, and then this comes, and it's completely out of my hands. I went four years between mammograms. I let it slide. Everyone gets busy, but don't make excuses. I stay in shape and eat right, and it happened to me. Another year and I could have been in big trouble."

We're relieved that she went when she did and caught it in time!

Navratilova has already had a lumpectomy and plans to begin six weeks of radiation therapy, starting in May.

We wish her the best of luck during this difficult time. Stay strong, bb!
