Wolverine actor undergoes further treatment
Hugh Jackman has revealed that he’s been treated for skin cancer again.
The actor wore a plaster on his face at the New York premiere of X-Men: Days Of Future Past on Saturday after having a second cancerous growth removed.
Another Basel Cell Carsinoma. All out now,’ Hugh, 45, posted on Instagram with a selfie of his bandaged nose.
Thanks Dr. Albom and Dr. Arian. PLEASE! PLEASE! WEAR SUNSCREEN!’
BCC usually develops on skin exposed to the sun and, although it rarely spreads to other parts of the body, it can damage or disfigure surrounding tissue.
Aussie star Hugh was first diagnosed in November when his wife Deborra-Lee Furness advised him to get a spot on his face checked and it turned out to be a dangerous growth.
Fans have been wishing the actor well after his second operation.
Glad to hear you’re in the clear! ‘ one wrote.
