Los Angeles: Actor Shannen Doherty has said that she will be undergoing another surgery, a year after she had declared that her breast cancer was in remission.

The 47-year-old actor, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, had last month said that one of the two tumour marker tests came back "elevated" but she is still staying "positive".

Doherty shared a photo of hers with her phlebotomist on the Instagram page and wrote, "My doctor had me bank some blood for my upcoming surgery. Mars P was patient with me and didn't even roll his eyes at my anxiety over the needle size. He was patient, kind and really good." 

My doctor had me bank some blood for my upcoming surgery. Mars P was patient with me and didn’t even roll his eyes at my anxiety over the needle size. He was patient, kind and really good. As I sat there banking blood for myself, I asked him about some of the people also donating... especially the ones with TVs. So two of them come every 2 weeks and donate platelets which takes 2 hours. Another girl comes as often as allowed to donate blood. To say I’m moved by the generosity of people is an understatement. I’m vowing that as long as I’m cleared in the future, I will start donating. Thank you to those selfless humans that donate. Thank you to Mars and all at the clinic in Woodland Hills for your smiles and hard work. Thank you to the @americanredcross #humbledagain.
