Hollywood actress Shannen Doherty has announced that her breast cancer is in remission.

In an Instagram post, 46-year-old Doherty, best known for her role as Brenda Walsh on Beverly Hills, 90210, said the "good news" was "overwhelming".

But her joy was tempered with the caution that recurrences can happen and said the next five years will be critical.

Doherty's cancer was publicly revealed in a lawsuit filed against her former business managers in 2015. The actress claimed they mismanaged her money and allowed her health insurance to lapse.

She has been open about her condition since then, regularly updating her Instagram account with pictures and information about her treatment.
