Hugh Jackman Treated for Skin Cancer Third Time in a Year

Oct 28, 2014 at 2:08 pm |

Today Hugh Jackman posted this pic on Instagram with a caption that read, “PLEASE! PLEASE! WEAR SUNSCREEN!”? Did he not take his own advice?

Unfortunately, the 46-year-old actor recently underwent treatment for his third case of basal cell carcinoma (BCC).

But don’t worry, the ‘Wolverine’ actor is just fine. BCC is a common form of skin cancer in the United States. Jackman simply had some cells removed from the outside of his nose over the weekend and was patched up with a simple Band-Aid.

The Australian is already fully recovered, and just yesterday (Oct. 27) the Tony Award winner posted this pic of himself and his dog, Dali. Glad you’re okay Jack!
