Shannen Doherty has provided a devastating cancer update to her fans.

The former “Beverly Hills, 90210” star, who is battling stage 4 breast cancer, posted a video on social media showing her having radiation therapy.

“On January 12, the first round of radiation was administered,” the 52-year-old captioned her Instagram photo. “My fear is obvious. I am extremely claustrophobic, and a lot was going on in my life.”

“I am fortunate to have great doctors like Dr. Amin Mirahdi and the incredible techs at Cedar Sinai,” she continued. “But the anxiety…. the upheaval….. the timing of it all… This is what cancer can look like.”

Doherty tweeted a video from January of herself getting fitted for the mask on Monday.

The actress has been upfront and honest about her treatment procedure since being diagnosed with breast cancer for the first time in March 2015.

“I had many nose bleeds from the chemo,” she previously admitted, adding that she endured a mastectomy, chemo, and radiation. “I’m not sure whether any of you have had this experience. I was also exhausted.”

Doherty subsequently revealed in February 2020 that she was facing stage 4 breast cancer, three years after her first bout with the illness had ended in remission.

Doherty alerted supporters in 2021 that she was “fighting to stay alive.”

“I never want to operate like I’m dying,” she remarked on “Good Morning America” at the time.

“I just want to operate as if I don’t have things to tick off because I’m going to keep fighting to stay alive,” she added, explaining why she dislikes the idea of making a “bucket list.”

Later that month, on Instagram, Doherty remarked, “Is it all pretty? No, but it’s true, and my aim is that by sharing, we can all become more educated and comfortable with what cancer looks like.

“I hope I’ve inspired people to get mammograms, to get regular checkups, to cut through the fear and face whatever lies ahead.”
