Sharon Stone: A life full of tragedies

Sharon Stone (64) recently announced that she had been diagnosed with another tumor. Without her persistence, it probably wouldn't have been found, as the actress explained on Twitter. But it was neither her first tumor nor the first misdiagnosis that she received...

In her 2021 biography, The Beauty of Living Twice, Stone reported that she had benign breast tumors removed in 2001. During this operation, unsolicited changes were made to her body, as Stone wrote.

Implants are said to have been placed in her without her consent. Stone said she was up a cup size when she woke up from anesthesia. The surgeon in charge explained: The new breasts would fit her hips better.

In the same year, Stone also suffered a stroke and a brain hemorrhage as a result. In an interview with Variety, she explained that it took a long time for her to heal. "From other women in my line of work to the judge who handled my custody battle, I don't think anyone understands how dangerous a stroke is for women and what it takes to recover from it. I'm about seven years old needed for that."

Another diagnosis that made life difficult for Stone is endometriosis. These are growths of uterine lining-like tissue. According to Stone, this disease is also responsible for the fact that she suffered a total of nine miscarriages, as she commented on Instagram in June 2022 under a post from "People".

Not for the first time, Stone criticized the male-dominated medical industry, which she says is "lax, ignorant and oppressive" for women. Stone also points this out in her latest post and calls on women in particular not to be turned away by doctors.

Her case confirms this: After a misdiagnosis and wrong treatment, her pain got worse, as Stone describes on Twitter. Only thanks to a further examination by another doctor was a large, benign tumor in her uterus diagnosed. The 64-year-old needs surgery and will need about four to six weeks to fully recover.
