*In the wake of the news of the death of Vesta Williams, here’s another shocker for you.

Comedienne/actress Wanda Sykes has revealed that she had breast cancer and double mastectomy surgery according the Gossip Cop website.

The comedienne taped an appearance on “Ellen” Thursday when she announced – for the first time ever – that she had the disease.

Sykes told host Ellen DeGeneres that she went in to have breast reduction surgery in February, and that’s when the cancer was detected.

Gossip Cop says they were told by an audience member that Sykes said she had a double mastectomy in August, and went back on the road with her stand-up routine a month later.

According to the site, the Sykes episode airs on Monday, but you can watch it below now.
