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]."

The "Careless Whisper" hitmaker was treated by paramedics at his north London mansion for four hours on May 22 due to a mystery illness before being helped into an ambulance.

Tori Spelling was recently hospitalized for almost a week.
The True Tori star spent at least six days at a medical facility, and was seen heading home from the undisclosed clinic on Saturday afternoon, still with a pink hospital band on her wrist, though it is unclear what she was being treated for.
Despite her marital problems with Dean McDermott - who has confessed to cheating on her late last year - her spouse was by her side throughout her stay in hospital. "Dean would arrive by 10am and didn't leave until 8 most nights. He seemed very stressed out and worried. He would bring food and often only left Tori to go outside to catch some air or make a phone call," a source said.
The 40-year-old actress - who has children Liam, seven, Stella, five, Hattie, two, and Finn, 20 months, with Dean - recently admitted her spouse "broke her heart" when he admitted to cheating on her with 28-year-old Emily Goodhand during a trip to Toronto, but she wants to work through their problems for the sake of their kids.
Amanda Bynes doesn't have schizophrenia.
The troubled actress, who completed psychiatric treatment in December following a series of public outbursts, has asked her lawyer, Tamar Arminak, to shoot down rumors claiming she suffers from the mental disorder.
"There has been much speculation about Amanda's medical condition. She has remained silent because she believed it was best to keep her mental health diagnosis private. However, she asked me to dispel certain rumors. For the record, Amanda does not have schizophrenia, nor has she ever been diagnosed with it," Arminak said, speaking to People.
The attorney also claims the 28-year-old star, who chucked a marijuana bong out the window of her apartment in New York City last May, has never abused drugs or alcohol and she quit cannabis nine months ago. "She's devoted to living her life as healthy as possible. She's never had a history of abusing alcohol or hard drugs, and she's proud to say she's been marijuana-free for the past nine months," he explained.
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.
