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.
