Shannen Doherty Reveals She Has Breast Cancer

Former Charmed star Shannen Doherty has revealed she has breast cancer.

In a lawsuit Shannen has accused her former business manager of being responsible for the severity of her case.

According to TMZ, the 44-year-old claims Tanner, Mainstain, Glynn & Johnson failed to pay her health insurance which, as a result, was cancelled.


Unable to re enrol until the following year, Shannen says she stopped her regular doctor’s visits.

In March this year she learned that she had an “invasive breast cancer metastatic to at least one lymph node”.

Now Shannen is taking the case to court claiming the cancer spread while she was uninsured – and she’s laying the blame on her former manager who says they’ll “aggressively defend” the charges.


The star, who first won notoriety for her role as Brenda in Beverly Hills 90210, says it’s likely she’ll now have to have a mastectomy and chemotherapy.
