He captioned it as, '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.'

Last year, in May 2015 Jackman revealed that he's had four skin cancers in 18 months and he was warned by his doctors that he's likely to have more in the future.

He was first treated for the above illness in 2013, when his make-up artists noticed some bleeding on the actor's nose while applying make-up during the filming of X Men.

He get his skin checked once in three months. He says, 'The beauty of this is it's all preventable. It's just about getting proper check-ups, he said. 'I can be a typical man, I couldn't be bothered, and now I'm not lazy at all.'

'I'm realistic about the future and it's more than likely that I'll have at least one more but probably many more, which is not uncommon for an Aussie particularly from English stock growing up in Australia where I don't remember ever being told to put sunscreen on.' He added.
