Sykes, 47, said that she had found out about the cancer when she ha undergone breast reduction.
This was her statement, "This was in February. I went for the reduction. I had real big boobs and I just got tired of knocking over stuff. Every time I eat … Oh lord. I’d carry a Tide stick everywhere I go. My back was sore so it was time to have a reduction."
She added, "It wasn't until after the reduction that in the lab work, the pathology, that they found that I had DCIS [ductal carcinoma in situ] in my left breast. I was very, very lucky because DCIS is basically stage-zero cancer. So I was very lucky."
Sykes revealed that she went for a double mastectomy. Her family has history of breast cancer. Now she has zero chance of getting breast cancer.
