Breast Cancer Spreads to Shannen Doherty’s Brain, Actress Reveals

Shannen Doherty

Shannen Doherty has disclosed that the brain has been affected by the terminal breast cancer for which she has been getting therapy for a number of years.

Doherty posted an emotional video of herself receiving radiation therapy to Instagram with the message, “Mets,” or metastasis, having been discovered in her brain during a scan in early January.

“My fear is obvious,” the 52-year-old actor, who has been in TV shows like Charmed and Beverly Hills, 90210, wrote in the post. Because of my severe claustrophobia and the amount of activity in my life. But this is what cancer may look like—that worry, that turbulence, that timing.

When Doherty made her news, fans and celebrities rushed to her side.

Still again, actor and friend Selma Blair wrote, “This is a lot to take on.” “And I hope that all the smart peace you’ve learned will help you get through the scary times. To know that we have you. Love. All love.”

“Rooting for you, my irreplaceable friend,” said Kevin Smith, who directed her in the 1995 movie Mallrats. “You have been such a fearless fighter your whole life, so it’s reasonable that you get scared sometimes. But when those times are over, let the Doherty spirit take over again. “My Mallrat, I love you so much.”

“You are a warrior,” actress Sarah Michelle Gellar wrote in a letter.

Doherty was first told she had breast cancer in 2015. Since then, she has had a surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. She said in 2017 that her cancer was gone, but three years later she said she had been told she had deadly breast cancer.

In an interview with Good Morning America in 2020, she described receiving her second diagnosis as “a bitter pill to swallow in many ways.”

“I do have days when I wonder, ‘Why me?'” Then I think, “Well, why not me? ” One more? Other than me, who else merits this? We don’t, all of us.

People with stage four can work, she added, adding that she had tried to keep her second diagnosis a secret while filming the 90210 revival. Like, you know, the moment we receive that diagnosis, our life doesn’t end. There is still some living to be done.

Doherty has posted pictures of herself on social media with no hair and a nosebleed to show the numerous diagnoses and therapies she has had. She wrote, “I hope I inspire people to get mammograms, to have routine exams, to overcome fear and face whatever may be in front of you.
