Less than two months after undergoing a double lumpectomy, breast cancer battler and E! host Giuliana Rancic announced she will go back under the knife for a double mastectomy. She went public in part because "I would like to take the stigma away," she says. "'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." She also wants to encourage women to "get checked out." She is scared, she admits, but says she'll come out of the experience "a better woman." Click for more on her decision. (More Giuliana Rancic stories.)
