Dr. Thaïs Aliabadi is one of the country’s leading OB-GYNs and currently works at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. She was the doctor that delivered both Kylie’s daughter Stormi and Khloé’s daughter True.
Dr. Aliabadi revealed this week that after a mammogram, she was told she had early stage breast cancer, and said “My life turned upside down and the world collapsed around me.”
However, she underwent biopsies on her breast the following day, which all came back negative. Afterwards, the Doc said, “Hold your loved ones and your children close to your heart and don’t take your health for granted.”
She’s also recommending that women start receiving annual mammograms by age 40, especially if theres a history of cancer in the family, and advised, “Don’t gamble with your life. You Have one life to live!”
As we reported, Dr. Aliabadi not only delivered the Kardashian royal babies, but she also serves as the official OB-GYN for several royal families, although she has never revealed which ones.

Yesterday I was told I had early stage breast cancer based on my mammogram…. My life turned upside down and the world collapsed around me. Today my breast biopsies were all negative (no cancer). Life is so fragile. Hold your loved ones and your children close to your heart and don’t take your health for granted. – Start annual mammograms at age 40 (I get a baseline on my patients at 35) or 10 years before your first degree relative was diagnosed with breast cancer – If you have dense breasts, ask your doctor to order bilateral breast ultrasounds at the time of your mammogram – If you have a 1st degree relative under the age of 50 with breast cancer or 2 1st degree relatives (at any age) with breast cancer, you need a genetic cancer test. BRCA1/2 testing is not enough. You need the full panel genetic testing. – Ask your doctor to calculate your lifetime breast cancer risk. If the number is greater than 20%, you need annual mammograms and breast MRIs starting age 30. – 75% of patients with breast cancer don’t have any family history of breast cancer. Don’t gamble with your life. You have one life to live!!! 💕
