[tps_footer]Hollywood star Hugh Jackman, famously known for the role of Wolverine, has been treated for skin cancer for the fifth time. The ‘Les Miserables’ took to his Instagram account to share the news that he, once again, had undergone treatment for the skin cancer.
On Tuesday morning, Hugh took to his instagram account where he posted an image of his nose covered in dressing and wrote “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”.
The 47-year-old Australian actor first had a basal cell carcinoma removed in 2013 after he saw a mark on his nose. He thought he must have got the mark during the shoot with the to the claws of ‘Wolverine’. His wife Deborra-Lee Furness told him to get a mark on his nose checked and got to know about the cancer. The actor has spoken about not using sunscreen while growing up in Australia. Since the first diagnosis, Hugh gets checkups every three months and has also been raising awareness to use sunscreen. He has also launched sunscreen for children.
In an interview in 2014, Hugh gave a candid interview about the skin cancer. The actor said that he is realistic about the future and it’s more than likely that he will have at least one more but probably many more cancer cells , which is not uncommon for an Aussie particularly from English stock growing up in Australia where he doesn’t remember ever being told to put sunscreen on.
On work front, Hugh Jackman was last seen in as Blackbeard in ‘Pan’. The actor is also working on the next ‘Wolverine’ instalment.[/tps_footer]
