90210 star, Shannen Doherty, has been battling breast cancer since August 2015. One year ago the actress announced that her cancer was in remission but the next 5 years would be extremely crucial to knowing the longterm outcome. Shannen has been open with everyone about what she has been going through. The good the bad and the ugly. When she was diagnosed back in 2015 Shannen shared that her breast cancer has spread to her lymph nodes which would indicate that she was at stage 2 or 3. Although she had a mastectomy she still had to go through chemo and radiation.
Recently, while at her yearly checkup Shannen just shared her latest results. Are the results what she was hoping for or is her cancer back?
According to AOL, Shannen Doherty is “staying positive” after receiving less-than-favorable test results.
The former Beverly Hills 90210 star, who is in remission after battling breast cancer, shared her most recent round of test results on Tuesday.
“Test and results. One tumor marker test came back good. Other… elevated,” she captioned a selfie on Instagram that has since been deleted. “Just means I get monitored and another test.”
Nevertheless, the 46-year-old actress is continuing to keep a positive outlook.
“But even after that call, I’m staying positive and taking stock of my life,” she continued. “It certainly helps put things in perspective and reminds you of what you learned thru the cancer journey. And I sometimes, need a refresher.”
Doherty added that “cancer changes your life,” alongside the hashtag “#stillacancerslayer.”
“As I’ve said before, cancer changes your life in ways no one could ever imagine,” she said. “Btw, the elevation can be from all sorts of things. Oh, and vitamin D… need more of that too.”
The Heathers actress was first diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2015 and underwent several rounds of chemotherapy, as well as a single mastectomy. The star has been transparent about her emotional cancer journey, documenting her battle and recovery — including the loss of her iconic brunette hair — on social media.
Shannen shared last week on Instagram that after speaking with her regular doctor and getting more clarity on the results, everything is ok and that her cancer is not currently back. It appears that her amazing support system combined with her positive attitude and outlook with everything is proving that she can get through anything.
