Samantha Harris detected with a breast cancer –Will undergo double mastectomy

April 9, 2014 Samantha Harris

Samantha Harris is undergoing treatment for breast cancer.

She detected a lump in her right breast during a routine check up. The prior mammogram came out positive, but the actress insisted on a second test sensing something wrong.

A needle biopsy and lumpectomy revealed that the star has breast cancer. "It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest," the 40-year-old tells People.

The former Dancing with the stars sought opinions of various specialist until she was advised to get a double mastectomy done or a less-radical second lumpectomy with radiation.

Harris chose a double mastectomy which will be performed later this month. "I was sick of feeling the way that I did in the days after the diagnosis," she tells the mag. "I knew I needed to take control."

After she decided to take the call on having a double mastectomy done, she confesses, “I felt so much calmer."
