The celebrated Hollywood actor and the X-Men star took to his social platform Instagram to confirm about his cancer, which has been operated and removed successfully.
Using the opportunity to share the news with his 10 Million fans, Hugh Jackman wrote on his social platform, "Another basal cell carcinoma. Thanks to frequent body checks and amazing doctors, all is well. Looks worse with the dressing on than off. I swear! #wearsunscreen"
Basal Cell Carcinoma, is commonly known as BCC. It is one of the many types of cancer, mainly caused by excessive exposure of skin to sunlight and particularly the UV rays.
According to the reports of The Skin Cancer Foundation, it has been found that each year, about three million cases are being diagnosed in the state of US.
Hugh Jackman was first diagnosed with BCC in the year 2013, when he got a mole on his skin checked as advised by his wife Deborra-Lee Furness.
"Deb said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy, was she right! I had a basil cell carcinoma. Please don't be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!" Said Hugh Jackman.
Since then, Hugh Jackman has been diagnosed and treated for cancer five times including the latest one.
"I go every three months for check-ups. It's the new normal for me. My doctor says I'll likely have more, and if that's your cross to bear in life, you should be so lucky." Said Hugh Jackman.
