Shannen Doherty Says Tumor Marker Is 'Elevated' After Scan
Shannen Doherty has revealed she will need to be closely monitored for cancer after undergoing new tests where she was found to have 'elevated' markers on a tumor scan.
The 46-year-old, who recently went into remission has stated that she is remaining positive and is being forced again to take stock of her life.
On Tuesday she shared a selfie with the caption: 'Test and results. One Tumor marker test came back good. Other... elevated.'
'Just means I get monitored and another test,'
'But even after that call, I’m staying positive and taking stock of my life.'
'It certainly helps put things in perspective and reminds you of what you learned thru the cancer journey.'
'And I sometimes, need a refresher. As I’ve said before, cancer changes your life in ways no one could ever imagine.....btw, the elevation can be from all sorts of things. Oh and vitamin D... need more of that too.'
She ended her note with the hashtag: '#stillacancerslayer'.
The star has recently been working on a TV reboot of her 1988 film Heathers.
Still in remission. I imagine that I’ll always worry to a certain extent but I think we all worry about something. Cancer is a beast that changes one. For me, it changed me in a lot of beautiful ways. But it also gave me a new level of anxiety about things. All understandable. I share my experience to help connect, bring awareness and hopefully encourage those going thru cancer to stay positive. So many of you have helped me with your words, prayers and support. You have helped pave the path I have walked and continue to walk and I’m eternally grateful for that. I can only hope I have helped you as well. Much love to you all. #remission #cancerslayer
