Having her breasts removed after a cancer diagnosis was worse than having ovarian cancer , Kathy Bates has said.

The Oscar-winning actress bravely fought ovarian cancer in 2003 and 10 years later she discovered she had breast cancer.

After learning that she had cancer for the second time, she researched treatments and decided to have a double mastectomy.

“Breast cancer runs like a river through my family,” Kathy said before explaining how several members of her family have died from breast cancer and how her niece has battled it after having her second breast removed.

“It was strange. Ovarian wasn’t so bad for some reason, but breasts were worse. It was very emotional and I really felt like my life was over,” she said.
