    Cynthia Nixon Reveals Battle With Breast Cancer

    celebs: Cynthia Nixon

    NEW YORK, New York -- "Sex and The City" star has revealed that she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006.
    Nixon shared her story during an interview on "Good Morning America" on Tuesday.

    The 42-year-old actress, who plays Miranda in the "Sex and The City" series and upcoming movie, said it was something she had always wanted to keep private.
    "I didn't want to make it public while I was going through it," Nixon said. "I didn't want paparazzi at the hospital and things like that."

    It was a routine trip to the doctor that uncovered the disease, she said.
    "I go for my completely routine mammogram and then I get a call from my gynecologist and she says, 'Well I have some, it's not such great news,'" Nixon revealed.

    Now fully recovered, the small mass in her right breast was removed and Nixon was treated with radiation.
    "I felt scared. Even though I felt scared and I thought, 'Oh I don't want this to be happening,' I was very cognizant of if it's going to happen, this is the best way for it to happen - that it's found so early and we can just get right on it," Nixon added.

    She also spoke about how she handled the situation with her kids, which she shares with her girlfriend Christine.
    "We made a big point of talking to my kids about it," Nixon said. "I basically told them they found some cancer in my right breast. It's very small and it's very early. I'm going to have an operation, they're going to take it out and then we're going to have six-and-a-half weeks of radiation, every weekday. This is what grandma went through and I'm going to be fine."

    Nixon's mother also survived two bouts with breast cancer.
    "As the daughter of a breast cancer survivor, knowing my personal risk made me more aware and more empowered when I faced my own diagnosis," Nixon said.

    I'm glad she's okay. I respect her for keeping it private, God knows I wouldn't want my face plastered on mags claiming I was dying and making it a story of their own.

    What about the father? She was with the guy for a while. I really hope he wasn't shoved out of the picture when that beastly girlfriend came on the scene, because that would be kind of shitty.

    I have a friend who just lost her breast and is getting ready for chemo, I've known her for over 15 years. She has a on line cancer blog and it's both amazing how much courage she has and it's frightening to see how much she has left to face. Cancer isn't for sissies.

    I hate cancer - I'm happy for anyone that can make it through it.

    Yeah, she was with her kids' dad for like 15 years. I'm not sure if she left him for the g/f or not.

    Whatever. As IF paparazzi would have been a problem for HER.

    ^It probably wouldn't have been a problem, but I completely respect her decision not use cancer as a means to garner more attention.

    It is interesting that she is chosing to talk about it NOW. Was a publication threatening to 'talk' about it or something?

    I like her, glad she's ok. Hope she's happy!
