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.
