Hugh Jackman Gets Second Skin Cancer Spot Removed

Posted Friday May 9, 2014 2:33 PM GMT

Faced with another scary health flare up, Hugh Jackman had another patch of skin cancer removed earlier this week.

The “X-Men: Days of Future Past” actor took the opportunity to urge his fans to wear sunscreen and protect their precious skin from the sky’s harmful rays.

While sporting a large bandage on his nose, Hugh shared an Instagram selfie and wrote, “Another Basal Cell Carcinoma. All out now. Thanks Dr. Albom and Dr. Arian. PLEASE! PLEASE! WEAR SUNSCREEN!"

He followed up his comments on Twitter to thank his doctors "for operating on my nose until 10:20pm! #SUNSCREEN."

Jackman had another malignant cancer spot removed last November after his wife Deborra-Lee Furness shared her concern about a troubling spot on his nose.

“Please don't be foolish like me," Jackman told his fans at the time of his first cancer removal. "Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!"
