Shannen Doherty Reveals Stage 4 Cancer Diagnosis

In an interview with ABC News that aired Tuesday morning on Good Morning America, actress Shannen Doherty revealed that her cancer has returned. Doherty, 48, opened up about the return of her breast cancer after announcing that she was in remission in 2017.

“It’s going to come out in a matter of days or a week that I’m stage 4. So my cancer came back, and that’s why I’m here,” Doherty said. “I don’t think I’ve processed it. It’s a bitter pill to swallow in a lot of ways.”

Doherty, known for prominent TV roles in shows like Charmed and Beverly Hills, 90210, was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015.
