Shannen Doherty Shares Her Brave Battle with Cancer 


Shannen Doherty, best known for her roles in “Charmed” and “Beverly Hills, 90210,” has been candidly sharing her journey with stage 4 breast cancer since her diagnosis in February 2020. Despite her brave front, the 52-year-old actress recently admitted to feeling petrified as she prepared to undergo surgery to remove a brain tumor.

In an Instagram post, accompanied by a behind-the-scenes video, Doherty revealed that she would be undergoing surgery on January 16, 2023. She expressed her fears, stating, “I’m trying to be courageous, but I’m scared to death… To me, the fear was overwhelming.”


Doherty shared her concerns, including the potential negative consequences, the impact on her mother, and how she might look after the surgery. She emphasized that cancer can manifest in various ways and that her experience is a reflection of that reality.

Just a week prior, Doherty disclosed that a CT scan had revealed brain metastases, a condition that occurs when cancer cells spread from their original location to the brain. She documented her radiation therapy session on January 12, acknowledging her fear and admitting to suffering from severe claustrophobia.
