Kylie Minogue completely understands the medical decisions Angelina Jolie made regarding the removal of her breasts and her ovaries in her efforts to prevent getting cancer. The singer was a guest recently on The Jonathan Ross Show, and was asked if she identifies with the decisions that actress made--especially about her decision to go public with her cancer scare.

"To a point, I mean cancer has many forms," she said.

"I guess, I can only say to a point I did because I don't really know her story, she doesn't really know my story," Kylie Minogue added.

"Cancer has probably touched everyone in this audience in some way or another and all the stories are different, but certainly in as much as she felt it was her duty to talk about it," she continued. "I never questioned, not for a split second did I think of not saying what I had."

Kylie Minogue is coming up on her 10-year milestone of being cancer free in May. She was diagnosed in May of 2005 with breast cancer.

"I'm good. I have yet to reach my ten-year mark, which I imagine I'll be having a bit of champagne and crying a lot and feeling very happy and joyful and thanking all my friends and family," she explained.

"It's quite difficult to talk about it in interview situations because it's deep, and it's long and it's involved and it's hard to really say what it was in a neat package. It's pretty strange," she admitted.

Angelina Jolie just recently went public with her decision to have her ovaries removed. She has been very vocal about cancer awareness ever since she had her breasts removed after learning she is genetically predisposed to getting cancer.

Do you suppose Kylie Minogue will share more about her cancer ordeal once she reaches her 10-year mark next month?
