Hugh Jackman Reveals Second Skin Cancer Treatment
Hugh Jackman, who opened up last year about seeking treatment for skin cancer, revealed he had another basel cell carcinoma.
Jackman, 45, took to Instagram on Thursday to inform his fans of his latest health scare and to encourage them to wear sunscreen to avoid the same consequence.
On Wednesday afternoon, Jackman was photographed training for his upcoming role as Blackbeard in Joe Wright’s Pan film. While getting in some kickboxing and faux sword fighting outside at a New York City park with a trainer, the X-Men star was clearly sporting a bandage on his right nostril.
Back in November, Jackman revealed his first run-in with skin cancer, explaining on Instagram that he had a mark on his nose checked out due to his wife Deborra Lee Furness’s concern.
Basel cell carcinoma is caused by long-term exposure to the sun, and is identified by a small sore or bump. Though it’s not common for the cancer to spread, if untreated, it could lead to disfigurement.
