Jaime Pressly has opened up about having an "almost full mastectomy."
The Jennifer Falls actress revealed she noticed lumps forming in her breasts four years after she was first diagnosed with Mastitis - an inflammation in the mammary glad that often results from a bacterial infection related to breastfeeding. She developed a severe form of the benign disorder after welcoming her seven-year-old son, Dezi, with former fiance Eric Cubiche into the world in 2007, and initially assumed she was suffering from "regular breastfeeding pain."
"I had something that happened to me years ago -- when I had my son I got mastitis, but I didn't know because I thought it was just regular breastfeeding pain," The 37-year-old star told The Talk.
After having scar tissue removed from one breast, the blonde beauty's doctors informed her that the disorder had spread and she was forced to remove tissue from her other breast: "[I had] almost [a] 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. But it was the craziest thing. Thank God it wasn't [cancer]."

Chris Brown has been ordered to stay in a Miami rehab for another two months.
Doctors at the facility blame the musician's behavior on his previously undiagnosed PTSD and bipolar disorder, but they do claim that he is making improvements and becoming less impulsive.
Despite a report in which Brown said he "is happy with the program," he reportedly didn't look too happy to hear that his stay would be extended. A probation officer wrote to the court that Brown has indeed showed progressing and "[responding] well to treatment," but he additionally pointed out that the positive changes in his behavior "[have] occurred only recently."
Brown had been placed in rehab back in November after his was charged with a misdemeanor assault in Washington, D.C. - a direct violation of his probation for his 2009 assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna.
