Hugh Jackman Has Second Cancer Scare in Less Than Six Months (PHOTO)

Truth rating: 10

Hugh Jackman has been treated for skin cancer for the second time in less than six months.

On Thursday, the actor posted a photo of himself on Instagram with a small bandage on his nose — see right and below.

“Another Basel Cell Carsinoma [sic]. All out now,” wrote Jackman.

He went on to thank his doctors, and implored fans, “PLEASE! PLEASE! WEAR SUNSCREEN!”

And Jackman later tweeted, “Huge thanks to Dr. Arian and Dr. Born for operating on my nose until 10:20pm! #SUNSCREEN.”

As Gossip Cop reported at the time, the X-Men: Days of Future Past star had a basal cell carcinoma removed last November.

We wish Jackman many, many years of good health.
