Hugh Jackman Has Skin Cancer Removed

As Wolverine, Hugh Jackman has amazing healing powers. But now he's on the mend himself after revealing that he had a skin cancer scare.

Hugh posted a photo to Instagram showing him with a bandage over his nose. He wrote, "[WifeDeborra-Lee Furness] said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy, was she right! I had a basil cell carcinoma. Please don't be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!"

Jackman was diagnosis in the last few days and had it removed.

Basil cell carcinoma is a common form of skin cancer attributed to long-term exposure to radiation from the sun, according to the Mayo Clinic.
