Actress Jaime Pressly got the scare of a lifetime after she gave birth to her son Dezi in 2007: she thought she had breast cancer.
Four years after having her son, she noticed lumps on her breasts.
"What do you immediately think of?" she said while on The Talk Wednesday, alluding to cancer.
Thankfully, it wasn't cancer. It was mastitis, which according to the Mayo Clinic is "an infection of the breast tissue that results in breast pain, swelling, warmth and redness of the breast."
"I had something that happened to me years ago, I didn't know," she shared. "I have a high threshold for pain, I was a dancer for 25 years. When I had my son, I got mastitis, but I didn't know because I thought it was just regular breastfeeding pain."
After several doctor visits and having scar tissue removed, the 37-year-old actress revealed she would undergo an "almost full mastectomy."
"I still have some breast tissue left, just from the mastitis because it mutated into something else because it sat dormant for a while," the Jennifer Falls star told the hosts. "But it was the craziest thing. Thank God it wasn't [cancer]."
