Actress Shannen Doherty said Monday that her breast cancer has spread to her lymph nodes.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 45-year-old former 90210 star said she’s going to undergo more chemotherapy, followed by radiation.

“The unknown is always the scariest part,” Doherty said. “Is the chemo going to work? Is the radiation going to work? You know, am I going to have to go through this again, or am I going to get secondary cancer?

“Everything else is manageable. Pain is manageable, you know living without a breast is manageable, it’s the worry of your future and how your future is going to affect the people that you love.”

Doherty recently shaved her head, and shared pictures of it Instagram. She was diagnosed in February.
