Hollywood actress Shannen Doherty has settled a lawsuit against her former business managers, who she said left her without health insurance and caused a delay in doctors diagnosing her with breast cancer.

The settlement is contingent on unspecified conditions that need to be completed within 45 days, according to a settlement notice filed in the US.

The former Beverly Hills 90210 star sued the accounting firm Tanner Mainstain Glynn & Johnson and one of its former partners in August 2015.

She claimed they mismanaged her money and allowed her health insurance to lapse in 2014.

Doherty, 45, revealed that she was fighting breast cancer in August last year, after being diagnosed in March.

She has been documenting her fight on social media, recently sharing a set of images of herself shaving her head.

In another recent post, Doherty opened up about going through chemotherapy.

"Chemo day. A day many of us dread," she said.

"Strength gets us thru but every once in awhile, you just want to hide in bed and let chemo day pass you by."
