Shannen Doherty has spread to her brain

The Beverly Hills 90210 star was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015. In a video posted on social media on Wednesday, she shared her latest diagnosis with fans.

Shannen Doherty has revealed her cancer has spread to her brain.

Doherty was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, and in 2017 she announced she was in remission.

However in 2020, the 52-year-old revealed her cancer had returned a year prior and that it was then stage four.

On Wednesday, the actress shared a video on social media showing her treatment.

In the video, the Charmed and Beverly Hills 90210 star was tearful as the doctor prepared her to enter the machine, which she said was a process of “getting fitted for the mask” which is worn “during radiation to your brain”.

In the caption, the actress said: “On January 5th, my CT scan showed mets in my brain. Yesterday’s video was showing the process of getting fitted for the mask which you wear during radiation to your brain.

“January 12, the first round of radiation took place. My fear is obvious. I am extremely claustrophobic and there was a lot going on in my life.

“I am fortunate as I have great doctors like Dr Amin Mirahdi and the amazing techs at cedar sinai. But that fear…. The turmoil….. the timing of it all…. This is what cancer can look like.”

The day before, the actress shared another video with fans.

In the video, the doctor was discussing the process of making the mask that would be used during the scanning process.

Radiotherapy masks and moulds are used before a patient starts their treatment – these are also called shells.
