Giuliana Rancic Will Undergo Double Mastectomy For Breast Cancer

After revealing her breast cancer diagnosis in October, Giuliana Rancic has announced she will undergo a double mastectomy.

"First, I would like to take the stigma away," the E! host explained with husband Bill Rancic by her side on the 'Today' show.

"'Mastectomy' the word seemed so scary to me at first. After doing research and seeing the advancements, the surgery has come a long way from 20 years ago. The results can be incredible."

"Not only can it save your life, but you can come out feeling healthier and with a positive self-image. Second, I want to encourage everyone to be proactive with their health and get checked out."

"For me, it was important to get the cancer out. That's what I wanted to do, just get it out."

"At the end, to be honest, all it came down to was just choosing to live, and not looking over my shoulder for the rest of my life," Rancic explained.

"One of my first thoughts I had when I started considering the mastectomy was, 'What am I going to look like?' And then, 'What will my husband think?' But Bill told me, 'I don't care about the physical results,'" she said of the 'Apprentice' winner.

"I just want you around for another 50 years. I need you healthy. I need you as my wife. I need you as a mother to our kids.' So, let's just get you healthy.' And that certainly helped me come to a decision."

With surgery scheduled for next week, Rancic is hoping "for a full recovery by New Year's Eve. We're planning to be in Times Square!"
