Hugh Jackman Treated For Skin Cancer

Hugh Jackman has revealed he has been treated for skin cancer.

The 'Wolverine' star posted a picture of himself on his Instagram account showing his bandaged nose, after being diagnosed with a basil cell carcinoma.

He revealed that it was his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, who had urged him to get the growth checked.

"Deb said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy she was right! I had a basil cell carcinoma." he said.

“Please don’t be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!” he added.

While Hugh did not reveal any further details, basal cell carcinoma most commonly presents itself as a red or pale lump.
