Shannen Doherty reveals stage 4 cancer has spread to her brain

'Breast Cancer' has spread to Shannen Doherty's brain, according to the shocking announcement made by the actress last week. A stage four cancer was first diagnosed in 2020 when the actress was 49 years old. She posted the video on June 6, and under that video she wrote "12.

January 2023", in which she discussed the treatment in detail. On January 5, a CT scan of my brain revealed the presence of metastases. The video that was posted yesterday shows how to fit the mask that you wear during the radiation treatment for your brain.

According to the 52-year-old in the video she published a day before, the first round of radiation was administered on January 12. Shannen is lying down in the video as she is treated by the doctor. When the technician is explaining the steps of the process to her, her eyes are full of tears as she listens to him.

In the caption under the video, she stated that her fear was obvious. "As a claustrophobic person, I've experienced a lot over the past few years. I've had incredible doctors, like Dr. Amin Mirahdi, and amazing technicians, but that fear...

Turmoil.... the timing of everything..... this is what cancer can look like." 8 years have passed since she was first diagnosed with breast cancer. Her dog Bowie, according to her, played a significant role in the discovery of this disease.

During a CBS News interview in 2016, the actress said that dog was constantly sniffing right on the right side of her.

Mastectomy

After receiving the diagnosis, she acknowledged that it made sense. A year later, she told everyone that the disease had spread to her lymph nodes.

There was a mastectomy that she underwent in May 2016. Shannen made the shocking announcement in February 2020 that her cancer had returned and had progressed to stage IV and was incurable. Stage IV cancer is considered a death sentence for a lot of patients, she said at the time.

I would really appreciate if people would stop assuming that they can't work or can't function at full capacity, and instead give us a chance to prove them wrong." Additionally, she had been facing problems within her marriage, and earlier this year she filed for divorce from her husband, Kurt Iswarienko, with whom she had been married since October 2011.
