Applegate, 49, tweeted about her diagnosis early Tuesday.

She wrote: “It’s been a strange journey. But I have been so supported by people that I know who also have this condition. It’s been a tough road. But as we all know, the road keeps going.”

She continued by asking for privacy.

Applegate was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008 and had a double mastectomy.
