Angelina Jolie makes the heartbreaking decision to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes after cancer cells are detected

Actress Angelina Jolie has revealed she has undergone surgery to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes to avoid getting cancer.
The star, who is currently 39, says that her mother Marcheline Bertrand died when she was 49 and wanted to take the action now.

Her operation now puts her into forced menopause.

Mum-of-six Angelina says that she had been planning the preventative surgery for a while but two weeks ago she was told by her doctor that there were a "number of inflammatory markers that are elevated."
This, he said could be a sign of early cancer.
