Video/ Shannen Doherty tells how her biggest fear came true. Metastases have spread to the brain
After discovering that her breast cancer had returned in February 2020, actress Shannen Doherty revealed that a CT scan performed on January 5th revealed that she had brain metastases.
"On January 12, I did the first round of radiation," explained the actress, sharing a video on Instagram.
"My fear is clear. I'm extremely claustrophobic… That's what cancer looks like,” Doherty said.
According to the Mayo Clinic, the metastatic stage occurs when cancer cells spread from their original location in the brain. Brain metastases can form one or more brain tumors.
Many fans commented on the video to show their support and praised the actress for her courage in sharing such direct and honest images of her battle.
