Hugh Jackman Urges Followers to Wear Sunscreen After Skin Cancer Scare

The actor Hugh Jackman urges people to wear sunscreen.

In a recent Instagram post, Wolverine actor Hugh Jackman opened up about his treatment for basal cell carcinoma, the most common type of skin cancer. He posted a photo with his post-op bandage covering his nose and captioned it, “Another basal cell carcinoma. Thanks to frequent body checks and amazing doctors, all is well.

He’s shared posts about other basal cell carcinomas that he’s had removed before, starting in 2013.
