Hugh Jackman Treated for Skin Cancer Again
Hugh Jackman has been treated for skin cancer again.

The 'Wolverine' actor - who had cancerous cells removed last November - has urged fans to protect themselves from the damaging rays of the sun after undergoing a proecudure to remove a Basel Cell Carsinoma (BCC).

Posting a picture on Instagram showing his bandaged nose, he wrote: "Another Basel Cell Carsinoma. All out now. Thanks Dr. Albom and Dr. Arian. PLEASE! PLEASE! WEAR SUNSCREEN! (sic).

"Huge thanks to Dr. Arian and Dr. Born for operating on my nose until 10:20pm! #SUNSCREEN (sic)"

BCC is a treatable and common form of skin cancer signified by lesions or growths on the outermost layer of the skin that "often look like open sores, red patches, pink growths, shiny bumps, or scars" and are "usually caused by a combination of cumulative UV exposure and intense, occasional UV exposure, the Skin Cancer Foundation says.

Although it generally doesn't spread, the organisation warn that it can be disfiguring if not treated quickly.

The 45-year-old actor was first treated for the disease last year after wife Deborra-Lee Furness - with who he has children Oscar, 13, and Ava, seven, - urged him to get a "mark" on his nose checked out.

He tweeted: ''Boy, was she right! I had basil cell carcinoma.

''Please don't be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!! (sic)''
