When remission occurs, testing comes with it. Shannen Doherty has been through this process before, and her testimony on how breast cancer had changed her life is both beautiful and heartbreaking. The photos of her shaving off her head with her mother's help is something that is still remembered by fans of hers nearly two years after.

According to a recent report by Us Weekly, Shannen's tumor marker rose after visiting the doctor's office recently.

Remaining positive throughout this entire situation has been a must for Doherty, after realizing that having pain or anything similiar to it often led her to thinking very dangerous thoughts. However, with her amazing support system, she has been doing very well.

Reconstructive surgery was talked about as her next step at this point in time, along with more tests to ensure she was not experiencing a recurrence. Another option was a pill she had to take, but Shannen is still making these decisions as to what she decides to do.
