Hugh Jackman removes sixth skin cancer

Hugh Jackman - or Wolverine, to all you X-Men fans - talks about what to expect from the upcoming sequel.

 

Hugh Jackman has again called out to his seven million followers to wear sunscreen after posting his sixth treatment for skin cancer.

Jackman posted an image on his Instagram and Twitter accounts of a bandage over his nose.

“Another basal cell carcinoma. Thanks to frequent body checks and amazing doctors, all is well. Looks worse with the dressing on than off. I swear! #wearsunscreen,” wrote the 48-year-old Sydney-born Jackman, who paid $56 million for a low-rise penthouse apartment in Australia's North Bondi in March last year.

WHAT'S GOING ON WITH HUGH JACKMAN'S FACE?

Jackman, whose latest movie "Logan," the third installment in the X-Men’s "Wolverine" series, hits cinemas soon, has had at least six treatments for skin cancer.

Last year, he posted a photo to his Facebook page with a similar image of a bandage over his nose.

His first treatment for basal cell carcinoma was in November 2013 when his wife Deborra-Lee Furness told him to get a mole on his nose looked at by a doctor.
