When Australian singer and actress Olivia Newton-John found a suspicious lump in her breast, she immediately went to her doctor to get an exam. The results of her mammogram and needle biopsy came back normal, which should have been reason to breathe a sigh of relief. But Olivia, then in her early 40s, was not satisfied. “I didn’t feel right, and both my surgeon and I had an instinct about it, so he said he wanted to do a surgical biopsy,” Olivia tells OK!. The surgical biopsy revealed what Olivia suspected — that she had breast cancer. “That’s why I always say to women that if you have an instinct, pursue that.”
