Actor Hugh Jackman has revealed yet another bout with skin cancer, warning fans to wear sunscreen to keep the common disease at bay.

Jackman posted a photo to his Facebook page Monday showing a bandage over his nose, following surgery to remove a basal cell carcinoma. It’s not the Australian actor’s first encounter with skin cancer, or the first time he has urged his fans to wear sunscreen. He’s been treated at least three times before, dating back to 2013, for basal cell carcinoma - the most common form of skin cancer.

 

An example of what happens when you don't use sunscreen. Basal cell. The mildest form of cancer. PLEASE WEAR SUNSCREEN and get check ups regularly!
