Hugh Jackman has had another cancerous growth removed.

The 45-year-old actor attended the premiere of his latest film, "X-Men: Days of Future Past" Saturday night with a bandage over his nose.  He told The Associated Press he had a basal-cell carcinoma removed two nights earlier.

Jackman said learned the results of a recent biopsy earlier on Thursday, and had it removed right after.

Basal-cell carcinoma is a slow-growing form of skin cancer. Jackman was treated for same disease last year but said the prognosis was good: "It's all out now."

But he urges others to "get checkups and wear sunscreen."

He says he hopes kids will listen to X-Men character Wolverine, or at least the man who plays him, and be smart about their health.
