[ # ] Shannen Doherty reveals a marker test came back elevated
April 4th, 2018 under Shannen Doherty

Shannen Doherty has been very open about her battle with cancer which is not in remission and she just shared a recent update on her health. She went in for some tests and one did not come back the way she was hoping.

She said, “Test and results. One Tumor marker test came back good. Other… elevated.” Then she explained what that means, “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.”

Then she let us know that just because the test came back elevated, and that does not mean the cancer is back. It could be all sorts of things. Let’s pray for her that it is one of those other things.

UPDATE: Shannen Doherty announced today that she is still cancer free. The marker that came back elevated is not the same one as her cancer. Her PET scan came back clean, which means she is still in remission.

She says that she needs to be more responsible when sharing information. But I think it is the doctors who need to be more careful. They gave her hours of stress for no reason at all. I wish they were better at giving results. Don’t they realize they are, literally, playing with people lives.
