Olivia Munn Reveals Breast Cancer Diagnosis, Multiple Surgeries

Olivia Munn revealed today that she was diagnosed with breast cancer last year and has undergone four surgeries including a double mastectomy.

In an Instagram post today, the 43-year-old actor said, “I hope by sharing this it will help others find comfort, inspiration and support on their own journey.”

Munn said on the post that she was diagnosed in February 2023 after testing negative for the BRCA gene, a mutation commonly linked to breast cancer. Despite the negative test, her OB-GYN determined she had a 37% lifetime risk of having breast cancer and so advised Munn to undergo an MRI and a biopsy.

“Two months later I was diagnosed with breast cancer,” Munn wrote.

“We caught it with enough time that I had options,” she wrote. “I want the same for any woman who might have to face this one day.”
