Dr Oz: Shannen Doherty Battling Breast Cancer
Dr Oz, who was talking with Shannen Doherty, explained that her cancer is estrogen-positive invasive ductal, which is very common. The cancer feeds of estrogen, which is why they want to cut off her estrogen. Her doctors are very uneasy about her putting off surgery, so she gets a Lupron shot once a month. It completely shuts your ovaries down, which caused Shannen to go into menopause. She and her husband wanted to have children, but that doesn’t mean they won’t adopt. She also takes a pill. She then shared that she decided to have a surgery, but hasn’t decided whether she will have a lumpectomy or a mastectomy.
