“Wolverine 3” actor Hugh Jackman revealed that he recently had another skin cancer growth removed from his nose.
On his Instagram account, Jackman shared a selfie showing a small bandage across his nose and once again, urged people to wear sunscreen.
He captioned the photo: “An example of what happens when you don’t wear sunscreen. Basal Cell. The mildest form of cancer but serious, nonetheless. PLEASE USE SUNSCREEN and get regular check-ups. (sic)”
Jackman’s representative told People magazine that the actor had a successful procedure.
“He had a basal cell removed [Monday] morning. The margins are clear and he’s fine,” the actor’s rep said.
The “Pan” actor has already had three surgeries on his nose since after being diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma in 2013, Mirror noted.
This was also not the first time that Jackman used social media to warn the public about skin cancer. He first posted a snap of him online after first treatment in November of 2013.
Months later, Jackman posted a second photo and noted that his doctors have required him to have his skin checked every three months.
“I go every three months for checkups. It’s the new normal for me. My doctor says I’ll likely have more and if that’s your cross to bear in life, you should be so lucky,” he told People.
“Being an Australian, it’s a very common thing. I never wore sunscreen growing up so I was a prime candidate for it,” he added.
In addition to speaking out about the condition, he also launched his own line of sunscreen for children called Pure Sun Defense last year to further spread awareness about the risks of sun damage, the magazine reported.
People noted that aside from the spot on his nose, Jackman also had skin cancer cells removed from his shoulder.
