Hugh Jackman Treated for Skin Cancer Again
The actor has another basal-cell carcinoma lesion removed and posts a photo of his bandaged nose online
Déjà vu for Hugh Jackman.
The Wolverine star has once again been treated for skin cancer on his nose. And he once again showed his bandaged post-op face in a photo on Instagram.
“Another Basel Cell Carsinoma [sic]. All out now. Thanks Dr. Albom and Dr. Arian. PLEASE! PLEASE! WEAR SUNSCREEN!” Jackman, 45, wrote in the caption.
The actor was first treated for basal-cell carcinoma back in November. At the time, he also posted a photo online, saying his wife Deborra-Lee Furness had encouraged him to get the “mark” checked.
“Please don’t be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!” he wrote then.
Basal-cell carcinoma is the single most common form of cancer, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation. Almost 3 million cases are diagnosed in the U.S. each year. It almost never spreads beyond the lesion site but can be disfiguring if allowed to grow.
