Hugh Jackman Advocates On Sun Safety After New Skin Cancer Scare

Written by on April 4, 2023

Australian actor Hugh Jackman has revealed he is undergoing more skin cancer tests after a recent medical check-up. Sporting a bandage on his nose, the Wolverine actor took to social media to urge followers to get checked and follow sun safety advice. The 54-year-old star said he expects test results within the next few days. Jackman had his first skin cancer removed in 2013, and has since had at least six procedures. In his video post, Jackman said his doctor had noticed “little things which could be, or could not be basal cell [carcinomas]”. Basal cell carcinoma is a non-melanoma – which means it is much less likely to spread – and is caused by overexposure to the sun or sunbeds. Treatment for non-melanoma skin cancers are successful in 90% of cases, according to the NHS.
