Actor Hugh Jackman has revealed yet another bout with skin cancer, warning fans to wear sunscreen to keep the common disease at bay.
Jackman, 47, posted a photo to his Facebook page Monday showing a bandage over his nose.
“An example of what happens when you don’t use sunscreen,” he wrote. “Basal cell. The mildest form of cancer. PLEASE WEAR SUNSCREEN and get check ups regularly!”
Fans were understandably concerned, flooding his page with supportive comments and sharing skin cancer stories.
It’s not the Australian actor’s first encounter with skin cancer, or the first time he has urged his fans to wear sunscreen.
He’s been treated at least three times before, dating back to 2013, for basal cell carcinoma, the most common form of skin cancer.
More than 8 in 10 of the 3.3 million Americans diagnosed with skin cancer each year have basal cell carcinoma, according to the American Cancer Society.
Woman’s Hospital offers skin cancer screenings on certain dates throughout the year. The Physician’s Office Building at Woman’s is also home to The Dermatology Clinic if you have concerns or want to get your skin checked out.
