In a new sit-down interview with Dr. Mehmet Oz, actress Shannen Doherty revealed that she had recently battled through cancer.
During the 1990s, Doherty was a major cultural figure for Gen-Xers thanks to her work on “Beverly Hils 90210,” “Charmed,” and “Mallrats.”
After doctors found cancer in her breasts in March 2015, Doherty monitored the disease for almost a year before she ultimately decided to have surgery.
In the next few weeks Doherty will have surgery to remove one or both of her breasts.
“In the grand scheme of things…i’d rather be alive and grow old,” Doherty tells Oz in a preview clip posted by Entertainment Tonight.
