Samantha Harris Successfully Undergoes A Double Mastectomy

Samantha Harris is on the mend.

The former Dancing With the Stars host successfully underwent a double mastectomy, just over one month after she publicly announced that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Harris took to Twitter to let her fans that the surgery went smoothly and she seemed in good spirits, even referring to the surgical markings on her chest as "art."

During a routine examination last fall, Harris detected a lump in her right breast, and while her prior mammogram was clean, the former E! News correspondent sought further help from another specialist.

A needle biopsy, followed by a lumpectomy, revealed that the brunette beauty had breast cancer. "It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest," the 40-year-old told People.

Harris, who has two daughters with husband Michael Hess, turned to her friends for support and bonded with Giuliana Rancic, who also successfully underwent a double mastectomy in 2011 after her own breast cancer diagnosis.
