Giuliana Rancic

Giuliana Rancic will undergo a double mastectomy.

"Unfortunately [in] one breast they weren't able to clear the margins and get all the cancer out," her husband Bill told Today's Ann Curry.

Two months ago, the E! News host revealed she had early stages of breast cancer. She learned of the diagnosis through a mammogram she had before an IVF treatment.

Giuliana Rancic: I have early stages of breast cancer

Giuliana told Curry that "choosing to live and not looking over my shoulder for the rest of my life," was why she's going with the radical procedure. She also added that a big part of her decision to have the surgery was to avoid early menopause that would result from radiation and anti-estrogen therapy. The couple would then have to put off their quest to have a baby for several years.
